From: Daniel Lezcano <daniel.lezcano@linaro.org>

In the power control path with the interrupts disabled, cpuidle governors
calls tick_nohz_get_sleep_length() to get the duration until the next timer
expires.

This is not always convenient when going forward, as the duration is a
relative time to "now". To make it more flexible, let's instead provide two
new functions tick_nohz_get_next_timer|hrtimer(), which provides the actual
time for when the next timer is about to expire. The computation of the
duration can then be done by the caller.

For now, leave tick_nohz_get_sleep_length() as is. When users of it has
converted to the new APIs, then we can remove it.
