We are currently assuming that CEDE(0) has exit latency 10us, since
there is no way for us to query from the platform.  However, if the
wakeup latency of an Extended CEDE state is smaller than 10us, then we
can be sure that the exit latency of CEDE(0) cannot be more than that.
that.

In this patch, we fix the exit latency of CEDE(0) if we discover an
Extended CEDE state with wakeup latency smaller than 10us. The new
value is 1us lesser than the smallest wakeup latency among the
Extended CEDE states.

As per PAPR spec the CEDE hints are in increasing order of exit
latency.  Hence a given state's exit latency cannot exceed the one
following it.  The quirk is such that the first one (hint 0) is
implicit and hence we have to use the above logic to extract its
characteristics.
