Tomasz's patch is correct - currently only Exynos4210 and Exynos5250 work
fine with AFTR mode and upstream kernel (AFTR gets triggered by offlining
CPUs other than CPU0).

[ Exynos4x12 and Exynos3250 need secure firmware support (patches for this
need to be reworked on top of recent PM/firmware/cpuidle changes).

Exynos5410 should use big_little cpuidle driver. ]
