From: Wang Dongsheng <dongsheng.wang@freescale.com>

Each core's AltiVec unit may be placed into a power savings mode
by turning off power to the unit. Core hardware will automatically
power down the AltiVec unit after no AltiVec instructions have
executed in N cycles. The AltiVec power-control is triggered by hardware.
