[PATCH 0/2] Enabling PSCI based idle on ARM 32-bit platforms

PSCI firmware provides a kernel API that, through a standard interface,
allows to manage power states transitions in a seamless manner for
ARM and ARM64 systems.

Current PSCI code that initializes CPUidle states on PSCI based
systems lives in arch/arm64 directory but it is not ARM64 specific
and can be shared with ARM 32-bit systems so that the generic
ARM CPUidle driver can leverage the common PSCI interface.

This patch series moves PSCI CPUidle management code to
drivers/firmware directory so that ARM and ARM64 architecture
can actually share the code.

It is made up of two patches:

Patch 1 refactors ARM 32-bit generic idle implementation to make it
compliant with ARM64 CPUidle operations, and patches the existing
CPUidle implementation based on the generic CPUidle driver.

Patch 2 moves ARM64 PSCI CPUidle functions implementation to
drivers/firmware so that it can be shared with ARM 32-bit platforms
code. This patch also adds a PSCI entry section on ARM 32-bit systems
so that the PSCI CPUidle back-end can be enabled when the enable-method
corresponds to PSCI.

Patches apply on top of current patch stack to enable PSCI 1.0:


Tested on Juno board (ARM64), compile tested only on ARM 32-bit systems.
