Well we do have several automated build and boot systems failing
because of this with multi_v7_defconfig. And users are complaining,
see this report from Tobias Jakobi:


It seems that doing the revert is not enough based on the
page above.

I'd prefer we'd fix this issue properly for sure, it seems that
we're not quite understanding what's going on. And this might
hit other platforms too when they start implementing deeper
PM idle states in the mainline kernel.
