Revert "mm: make vmstat_update periodic run conditional"v3.10/topic/big.LITTLE
This reverts commit 7d252cd22a3f6cb459e8b012912dfd258157f7df because it has been implicated in kernel crashes when its workqueue timer is migrated during CPU hotplug. When HMP was initially being developed against a 3.4 derived kernel, it was observed that wakeups were occurring every 30s across every core to give the vmstat accounting a kick. This was causing a noticeable increase in energy consumption on the really quiet use cases such as audio and video playback. So commit 7d252cd22a was used which turned off the updates on idle CPUs to reduce that. On the 3.10 derived LSK this revert does not result in a significant increase in power consumption so it is assumed that changes since 3.4 have mitigated the initial problem.
