Just observed the use case for cpuidle_pause_and_lock/unlock.
It is not clear as to why we need to switch back to the old idle
handler and then again back to cpuidle's idle handler. Wouldn't it
make more sense to just register the idle handler when the first
cpuidle device is being registered and unregister the idle handler
when the last cpuidle device is unregistered?
