Subject: [RFC PATCH V3 1/3] cpuidle: Remove pm_idle pointer for x86

This patch removes pm_idle function pointer and directly calls
cpuidle_idle_call from the idle loop on x86. Hence, CPUIdle has
to be built into the kernel for x86 and optional for other
archs.

Archs that still use pm_idle can continue to set
pm_idle=cpuidle_idle_call() and co-exist. The
cpuidle_(un)install_idle_handler() is defined per arch in
cpuidle.c and would set pm_idle pointer on non-x86 architectures
until they are incrementally converted to directly call
cpuidle_idle_call() and not use the pm_idle pointer.
