To be honest, I'd rather not tighten the coupling with the cpuidle
driver here. For example, I'm not that happy with the PSCI backend
having to know the driver has a specific WFI state.

IIUC we could get rid of the explicit counting with something like:

	count = of_parse_phandle_with_args(cpu_node, "cpu-idle-states", NULL);

... but I'm not sure that the overall change is a simplification.

Does this change make it easier to plumb in something in future?

Thanks,
Mark.
