This is the formal patch set after the RFC v2 [0].

For now cpuidle governor can be switched via sysfs only when the
boot option "cpuidle_sysfs_switch" is passed, but it's useful
to switch the governor to adapt to different workloads, especially
after TEO and haltpoll governors were introduced.

Make cpuidle governor switchable to be the default behaviour by
removing the sysfs_switch and switch attributes, also update the
document as well.

Patch 1/6 and 2/6 are bugfix patch which can be triggered if the
governor name is 15 characters, it is not a 'real' bug for now as we
don't have such usecases, so we can merge them together via this
patchset.

Patch 3/6 and 4/6 are the functional update to make cpuidle governor
switchable to be the default behaviour.

Patch 5/6 and 6/6 are the document update.

Changes since RFC v2:
 - Remove sizeof(char) in patch 1/6;
 - Fix some minor typos;
 - Adding Review/Test/ACK tags.

When showing the available governors, it's "%s " in scnprintf(),
not "%s", so if the governor name has 15 characters, it will
overlap with the later one, fix it by adding one more for the
size.

While we are at it, fix the minor coding style issue and remove
the "/sizeof(char)" since sizeof(char) always equals 1.

CPUIDLE_NAME_LEN is 16, so it's possible to accept governor name
with 15 characters, but now store_current_governor() rejects
governor name with 15 characters as it returns -EINVAL if count
equals CPUIDLE_NAME_LEN.

Refactor the code to accept such case and simplify the code.

boot option "cpuidle_sysfs_switch" is passed, but it's important
to switch the governor to adapt to different workloads, especially
after TEO and haltpoll governor were introduced.

Add available_governors and current_governor into the default
attributes, but reserve the current_governor_ro for compatiblity.
