Subject[PATCHv1 2/8] Documentation: arm: Link idle-states binding to code
Date
The enable-method needs to be psci for the psci_cpuidle_ops to be
correctly registered.

Add a note to the binding documentation on where to find the declaration
of the enable-method since it is a macro and escapes any attempts to
grep for it.
