From: Rafael J. Wysocki <rafael.j.wysocki@intel.com>

In certain situations it may be useful to prevent some idle states
from being used by default while allowing user space to enable them
later on.

For this purpose, introduce a new state flag, CPUIDLE_FLAG_OFF, to
mark idle states that should be disabled by default, make the core
set CPUIDLE_STATE_DISABLED_BY_USER for those states at the
initialization time and add a new state attribute in sysfs,
"initial_status", to inform user space of the initial status of
the given idle state ("disabled" if CPUIDLE_FLAG_OFF is set for it,
"enabled" otherwise).
