idle / sleep: Avoid excessive disabling and enabling interrupts
Disabling interrupts at the end of cpuidle_enter_freeze() is not useful, because its caller, cpuidle_idle_call(), re-enables them right away after invoking it. To avoid that unnecessary back and forth dance with interrupts, make cpuidle_enter_freeze() enable interrupts after calling enter_freeze_proper() and drop the local_irq_disable() at its end, so that all of the code paths in it end up with interrupts enabled. Then, cpuidle_idle_call() will not need to re-enable interrupts after calling cpuidle_enter_freeze() any more, because the latter will return with interrupts enabled, in analogy with cpuidle_enter().
