vtime: Consolidate system/idle context detection
Move the code that finds out to which context we account the cputime into generic layer. Archs that consider the whole time spent in the idle task as idle time (ia64, powerpc) can rely on the generic vtime_account() and implement vtime_account_system() and vtime_account_idle(), letting the generic code to decide when to call which API. Archs that have their own meaning of idle time, such as s390 that only considers the time spent in CPU low power mode as idle time, can just override vtime_account().
