Daniel: I dont have CONFIG_ARM_QCOM_CPUIDLE defined anymore. By moving
to generic ARM cpuidle, i removed all changes to drivers/cpuidle/. So I
used the config item that defineds these items.

Also, having two indpendent CONFIG_ items provides a chance that the
declaration is not matched with the definition or vice versa.
