[RFC PATCH 0/3] arm: psci: implement cpuidle_ops

We'd like to use cpuidle-arm.c for both arm and arm64 with psci as backend.
For arm64, it works. But for arm, we miss cpuidle_ops, these patches try to
address this issue.

Has been tested on Marvell Berlin SoCs. These patches are rebased on the Mark
Rutland's latest psci unification work.

[PATCH 1/3] renames psci_smp.c to psci.c to prepare for the next two changes.
[PATCH 2/3] enables PSCI on UP systems so that some calls like cpu_suspend can
be made functional on UP too
[PATCH 3/3] add the cpuidle_ops for psci. Most code is stolen from arm64, which
introduce duplicated psci code, that's why it's marked as "RFC", I dunno where
to put cpu_psci_cpu_init_idle() related functions.

Comments are welcome!
