A concept patch in Skiboot to illustrate the case wherein handling of
stop states for different DD versions of a CPU can be achieved by a
simple modification in the list of cpu_features.
As an example idle-stop1 is defined which uses P9_CPU_DD1 to define the
cpu feature.

Along with that, an implementation is being worked upon the LE OPAL
series which helps OPAL handle the stop state entry and exit.

This patch advertises this capability of the firmware which can be
availed if the quirk-version-setting is not cognizable.

The firmware-enabled stop is being worked by Abhishek Goel
<huntbag@linux.vnet.ibm.com> building upon the LE OPAL series.

So, at this point, we don't need any such quirk for any of the DD
version right ? This is to demonstrate that if say P9_DD1 had a quirk
w.r.t stop-state handling, then this is how we would advertise it to
the kernel.

I suppose this is for the opal-cpuidle driver support posted here:

In OPAL do we have an macro defining BIG_ENDIAN ? If yes, you could
wrap the "firmware-stop-supported" in cpu_features_table[] within
#ifndef BIG_ENDIAN. That way you won't need a special case here.

Absolutely, A dummy property has been added to show how quirk handling
with stop-states.

Right, this complements in usage of the opal-cpuidle driver

HAVE_BIG_ENDIAN is actually a macro. Its a good idea to wrap it in
the declaration itself.
