cpuidle: Tracks all miscellaneous changes to upstream cpuidle

Registered by Daniel Lezcano

Track all the changes made by the blueprint assignee related to cpuidle when they touch the following:
 * any arch specific cpuidle changes
 * any ARM pm changes related to cpuidle
 * any changes to drivers/idle
 * any changes to drivers/acpi/processor_idle
 * any changes to drivers/cpuidle/*
 * any changes to kernel/*pm*

[daniel-lezcano, Oct 2, 2012] : the acpi code is very confusing and it uses the cpuidle core code in a way it is difficult to improve. With the multiplication of the cpuidle drivers for the ARM SoCs, we need to factor out the code and make it more modular.
It is very difficult to change the code without modifying the acpi driver. The acpi cpuidle driver should be cleaned up.
