cpuidle: (POWER) Replace pseries_notify_cpuidle_add_cpu call with a notifier to fix lockdep problem in start_secondary

From: Deepthi Dharwar <deepthi@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

Currently the call to pseries_notify_cpuidle_add_cpu(), that takes
action on the cpuidle front when a cpu is added/removed
is being made from smp_xics_setup_cpu().
This caused lockdep issues as
reported https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/5/17/2

On addition of each cpu, resources are cleared and re-allocated 
each time, all in critical section as part of start_secondary() 
call which has interrupts disabled.
To resolve this issue, the pseries_notify_cpuidle_add_cpu() call is
is now being replaced by a hotplug notifier which
would prevent cpuidle resources from being
released and allocated each time cpu is onlined in the critical code path.
