Supporting multiple CPU idle levels in kernel
cpuidle drivers
cpuidle driver hooks into the cpuidle infrastructure and handles the
architecture/platform dependent part of CPU idle states. Driver
provides the platform idle state detection capability and also
has mechanisms in place to support actual entry-exit into CPU idle states.
cpuidle driver initializes the cpuidle_device structure for each CPU device
and registers with cpuidle using cpuidle_register_device.
If all the idle states are the same, the wrapper function cpuidle_register
could be used instead.
It can also support the dynamic changes (like battery <-> AC), by using
cpuidle_pause_and_lock, cpuidle_disable_device and cpuidle_enable_device,
