Subject[PATCH V4 0/5] powerpc/cpuidle: Generic POWERPC cpuidle driver enabled for POWER and POWERNV platforms
This patch series consolidates the backend cpuidle driver for pSeries
and powernv platforms with minimal code duplication.

Current existing backend driver for pseries has been moved to drivers/cpuidle
and has been extended to accommodate powernv idle power mgmt states.
As seen in V1 of this patch series, having a separate powernv backend driver
results in too much code duplication, which is less elegant and can pose
maintenance problems going further.

Using the cpuidle framework to exploit platform low power idle states
management can take advantage of advanced heuristics, tunables and features
provided by 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.

Earlier in 3.3 kernel, pSeries idle state management was modified to
exploit the cpuidle framework and the end goal of this patch is to have powernv
platform also to hook its idle states into cpuidle framework with minimal
code duplication between both platforms. This result is a generic powerpc
backend driver currently enabled for pseries and powernv platforms and which
can be extended to accommodate other powerpc archs as well in the future.

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.

V1 ->
V2 ->
V3 ->

Changes in V4:

* This patch series includes generic backend driver cpuidle cleanups
including, replacing the driver and device initialisation
routines with cpuidle_register function.

* Enable CPUIDLE framework only for POWER and POWERNV platforms.

Changes in V3:

* This patch series does not include smt-snooze-delay fixes.
This will be taken up later on.

* Integrated POWERPC driver in drivers/cpuidle. Enabled for all of
POWERPC platform. Currently has PSERIES and POWERNV support.
No compile time flags in .c file. This will be one consolidated
binary that does a run time detection based on platform and take
decisions accordingly.

* Enabled CPUIDLE framwork for all of PPC64.

Changes in V2:

* Merged the backend driver posted out for powernv in V1 with
pSeries to create a single powerpc driver but this had compile
time flags.

Deepthi Dharwar (5):
pseries/cpuidle: Remove dependency of pseries.h file
pseries: Move plpar_wrapper.h to powerpc common include/asm location.
powerpc/cpuidle: Generic powerpc backend cpuidle driver.
powerpc/cpuidle: Enable powernv cpuidle support.
powernv/cpuidle: Enable idle powernv cpu to call into the cpuidle framework.
