Predicting the next event on the current CPU is implemented in the
idle state selection function, thus the selection logic and the
prediction are tied together and it is hard to decorrelate both.

The following change introduces the cpuidle function to give the
opportunity to the governor to store the guess estimate of the
different source of wakeup and then reuse them in the selection
process. Consequently we end up with two separate operations clearly
identified.

As the next events are stored in the cpuidle device structure it is
easy to propagate them in the different governor callbacks.
