SubjectRe: Regression with suspicious RCU usage splats with cpu_pm change

Yeah that keeps things booting for me with no splats so:

Tested-by: Tony Lindgren <>

In general, it seems we're missing the knowledge in Linux kernel
of when the entire system is idle. Right now it seems that only
cpuidle_coupled knows that?

We could probably simplify things by adding some PM state for
entire system idle. Then cpuidle code and timer code could use
that to test when it's safe to do whatever the SoC needs to do
to enter deeper power states.

If we already have something like that, please do let me know :)
