sched, idle: Fix the idle polling state logic
Mike reported that commit 7d1a9417 ("x86: Use generic idle loop") regressed several workloads and caused excessive reschedule interrupts. The patch in question failed to notice that the x86 code had an inverted sense of the polling state versus the new generic code (x86: default polling, generic: default !polling). Fix the two prominent x86 mwait based idle drivers and introduce a few new generic polling helpers (fixing the wrong smp_mb__after_clear_bit usage). Also switch the idle routines to using tif_need_resched() which is an immediate TIF_NEED_RESCHED test as opposed to need_resched which will end up being slightly different.
