Subject: Re: [PATCH] cpuidle: coupled: Enable interrupts when early returning
 on invalid driver

Hi Krzysztof,

may be your patch is right but I would like to clarify one thing. This 
is the cpuidle driver for exynos. AFAICT, the coupled states shouldn't 
be enabled for this driver, so how did you face this issue ?
