[Maverick] [PATCH 0/2] Build in the intel_idle driver

It's been requested that we enable the intel_idle driver.  This allows
Intel hardware to be more robust against ACPI BIOS bugs and shorcomings
of the ACPI implementation itself.  We actually already have this driver
enabled as a module.  However, a recent upstream commit disables module
support as it can lose an init race with ACPI rendering the driver
useless.

The following set of patches cherry-picks the upstream commit to disable
module support and then updates our Ubuntu configs to build in the
intel_idle driver.  I'm proposing this for Maverick inclusion.

Thanks,
Leann
