The arch_cpu_idle() interface doesn't allow one to express a desire for
deeper states. I'm not sure how anyone could even attempt this.

But given what OMAP needs to go deeper, this would involve things that
require RCU, combine that with the follow up patches that rip out all
the trace_.*_rcuidle() hackery from the power and clock domain code,
PROVE_RCU should scream if anybody were to attempt it.
