Preeti U Murthy - July 25, 2013, 9:03 a.m.
This patch hooks into the existing broadcast framework with the support that this
patchset introduces for ppc, and the cpuidle driver backend
for powernv(posted out recently by Deepthi Dharwar) to add sleep state as
one of the deep idle states, in which the decrementer is switched off.

However in this patch, we only emulate sleep by going into a state which does
a nap with the decrementer interrupts disabled, termed as longnap. This enables
focus on the timer broadcast framework for ppc in this series of patches ,
which is required as a first step to enable sleep on ppc.
