It still is, all the idle routines are called with interrupts disabled,
but must also exit with interrupts disabled.

If the idle method requires interrupts to be enabled, it must be sure to
disable them again before returning. Given all the RCU/tracing concerns
it must use raw_local_irq_*() for this though.
