Subject: [PATCH 4/9] idle: move the cpuidle entry point to the generic idle loop

In order to integrate cpuidle with the scheduler, we must have a better
proximity in the core code with what cpuidle is doing and not delegate
such interaction to arch code.

Architectures implementing arch_cpu_idle() should simply enter
a cheap idle mode in the absence of a proper cpuidle driver.
