For now cpuidle governor can be switched via sysfs only when the
boot option "cpuidle_sysfs_switch" is passed, but it's important
to switch the governor to adapt to different workloads, especially
after TEO and haltpoll governor were introduced.

Make cpuidle governor switchable to be the default behaviour by removing
the sysfs_switch and switch attributes, also update the document as well.

v1->v2:
 - Add two bugfix patch which can be triggered if the governor name is 15
   characters, it is not a 'real' bug for now as we don't have such usecases
   so we can merge them together via this patchset.
 - Remove the sysfs_switch, not introduce a CONFIG option to make cpuidle
   governor switchable in default, suggested by Daniel.
 - Update the document after cpuidle_sysfs_switch is removed, suggested by
   Doug Smythies.

    removal
