Hmm, after the problems with the pull request, it looks like you dropped
the coupled CPUidle series completely.  It's a shame that this has been
reviewed, tested and queued for so long only to see it dropped at the
last minute.

Instead of the squash, could you just queue the original series (that
has been in linux-next for some time) and then submit the fixes in
$SUBJECT series for v3.5-rc?  That way we could still get this support
in for 3.5, which many of us are waiting for.
