We originally had intel_idle enabled as a module.  However, build this
in for now per the following upstream commit:

    intel_idle: disable module support

    Right now the module capability is cauing more trouble
    than it is worth.  At least one distro built intel_idle as a module
    where it lost the init race with ACPI, making it useless.

    Make intel_idle bool so that if you select it, you will use it.

    We can restore module capability after cpuidle is enhanced
    to handle run-time changing of idle drivers.
