Thread-topic: [PATCH 4/4] CPUIDLE: Port menu governor
CPUIDLE: Port Linux menu governor to replace the initial ladder governor

The ladder governor has long pro/demotion delay shortcome while applying to 
tickless mode, because it needs to count usage. Menu governor chooses the next 
state simply via break-event prediction including the factors of next timer 
event & last residency time etc, so it would have faster response speed.
