pm_idle() on ARM was a synonym for default_idle(),
so simply invoke default_idle() directly.

The clean-up looks fine as we already have an arm_pm_idle but longer
term I was thinking about having a common declaration similar to
pm_power_off that code under drivers/power/(reset/) can override (and
such driver may be shared by multiple architectures). OTOH, if you get
rid of the generic linux/pm.h declaration architectures can use a common
pm_idle name and type (though I think having it in the common header
would be better). For ARM this would mean s/arm_pm_idle/pm_idle/ on top
if your patch.

Do you have any plans with pm_power_off as well?

Thanks.

pm_idle() was that common declaration - but it had the side effect that
it was defined to be called with interrupts disabled, but return with
interrupts enabled.

arm_pm_idle() "fixed" that weirdness such that it's now expected to
return with IRQs in the same state that it was called.

pm_power_off() is a cross-arch hook already.

Yeah, I expect that grew out of the x86 idiom "STI;HLT",
which dictated default_idle(), which in-turn dictated pm_idle().
x86's MWAIT instruction now has more flexibility WRT interrupts,
but the cast was already set...

Please let me know if you Ack the patch as is,
or would like it changed.

Looks good to me.

Tested this patch along with 15/16 (removes global declaration) on an
ARM platform (TI OMAP3) with and without CPUidle, and things continue to
work as expected:
