Subject[PATCHv2 2/2] powerpc: implement arch_scale_smt_power for Power7
From
Date
On Power7 processors running in SMT4 mode with 2, 3, or 4 idle threads 
there is performance benefit to idling the higher numbered threads in
the core.

This patch implements arch_scale_smt_power to dynamically update smt
thread power in these idle cases in order to prefer threads 0,1 over
threads 2,3 within a core.

v2 - Same functionality as v1, better coding style.

Version 2 addresses style and optimization, same basic functionality
