    Subject[PATCH V2 0/6] cpuidle/powerpc: POWERPC cpuidle driver for POWER and POWERNV platforms
    Following patch series consolidates backend cpuidle driver
    for pseries and powernv platforms.

    Current existing backend driver for pseries has been moved to
    arch/powerpc/sysdev and has been extended to accommodate
    powernv idle power mgmt states.
    As seen in V1 of this patch series, too much code duplication persists
    having separate back-end driver for individual platforms.

    Moving the idle states over to cpuidle framework can take advantage
    of advanced heuristics, tunables and features provided by cpuidle
    framework. Additional idle states can be exploited using the cpuidle
    framework. The statistics and tracing infrastructure provided by
    the cpuidle framework also helps in enabling power management
    related tools and help tune the system and applications.

    This series aims to maintain compatibility and functionality to
    existing pseries and powernv idle cpu management code.
    There are no new functions or idle states added as part of this series.
    This can be extended by adding more states to this existing framework.

    With this patch series the powernv cpuidle functionalities
    are on-par with pSeries idle management. Other POWERPC
    platforms can use this to exploit CPUIDLE framework.

    This patch mainly focus on an integrated CPUIDLE backend
    driver for POWERPC. Minor cpuidle clean-ups will be
    taken up going further.

    One need to enable POWERPC_IDLE config option to exploit these
    backend drivers.

    V1 ->

    Deepthi Dharwar (6):
    cpuidle/pseries: Fix kernel command line parameter smt-snooze-delay
    cpuidle/pseries: Remove dependency of pseries.h file
    pseries: Move plpar_wrapper.h to powerpc common include/asm location.
    cpuidle/pseries: Move the pseries_idle backend driver to sysdev.
    cpuidle/powerpc: Backend-powerpc idle driver for powernv and pseries.
    cpuidle/powernv: Enable idle powernv cpu to call into the cpuidle framework.
