Subject: [PATCH] ARM: avoid cpuidle link warning

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@...db.de>

Since commit 83109d5d5fba ("x86/build: Warn on orphan section placement"),
we get a warning for objects in orphan sections. The cpuidle implementation
for OMAP causes this when CONFIG_CPU_IDLE is disabled:

arm-linux-gnueabi-ld: warning: orphan section `__cpuidle_method_of_table' from `arch/arm/mach-omap2/pm33xx-core.o' being placed in section `__cpuidle_method_of_table'
arm-linux-gnueabi-ld: warning: orphan section `__cpuidle_method_of_table' from `arch/arm/mach-omap2/pm33xx-core.o' being placed in section `__cpuidle_method_of_table'
arm-linux-gnueabi-ld: warning: orphan section `__cpuidle_method_of_table' from `arch/arm/mach-omap2/pm33xx-core.o' being placed in section `__cpuidle_method_of_table'

Change the definition of CPUIDLE_METHOD_OF_DECLARE() to silently
drop the table and all code referenced from it when CONFIG_CPU_IDLE
is disabled.

Fixes: 06ee7a950b6a ("ARM: OMAP2+: pm33xx-core: Add cpuidle_ops for am335x/am437x")
