I'm almost certain those values are not n900 specific but should be
used for omap3430 in general.

While this conversion process is going on, we could just add
omap3430_idle_driver and set that based on cpu_is_omap3430()
in omap3_idle_init().

This is assuming it really is 3430 specific. The only thing that
could potentially make it n900 specific is the fact that Nokia had
their own bootrom. But AFAIK these latencies are hardware specific
and should not be related to the bootrom.

Tony
