Just for my personal information, do you know why ?

Ah, ok. Thanks for the info.

Here, we are introducing some dependencies I tried to drop in the
different drivers.

I looked more closely at the code and especially the
'cpuidle_coupled_exynos_data'. I don't think it is worth to have it
because it adds more complexity and you have to define this structure to
be visible from the drivers/cpuidle files.

I suggest you create an simple function in "pm.c"

int exynos_coupled_aftr(int cpu)
{
pre_enter...

if (!cpu)
cpu0_enter_aftr()
else
cpu1_powerdown()

post_enter...
}

and in the cpuidle driver itself, you just use the already existing
anonymous callback 'exynos_enter_aftr' (and mutate it to conform the
parameters).

You won't have to share any structure between the arch code and the
cpuidle driver.

Ok, sounds good.

The AFTR state worked on my 5250 very well. It is a Arndale board.


Thanks for resurrecting the patch and providing the multi core idle
support. I am too busy to refocus on that right now.
