Move the cpuidle drivers to the drivers directory

Registered by Daniel Lezcano on 2012-01-12

This Blueprint has been moved to JIRA: https://cards.linaro.org/browse/PMWG-228

In order to consolidate the cpuidle code and create a common framework, we want to move all the archs specific drivers to the drivers directory in the flat directory where it is the place they belong to. The community is willing to do that before adding more stuff around cpuidle.

Whiteboard

The drivers can not be moved from the arch specific as they are. A cleanup work is needed in order to separate the SoC specific code from the cpuidle code. These have to be done step by step and driver per driver. The benefit of this work is we are already cleaning up the code for a common cpuidle framework.
