PM / tracing: remove deprecated power trace API
The text in Documentation said it would be removed in 2.6.41; the text in the Kconfig said removal in the 3.1 release. Either way you look at it, we are well past both, so push it off a cliff. Note that the POWER_CSTATE and the POWER_PSTATE are part of the legacy tracing API. Remove all tracepoints which use these flags. As can be seen from context, most already have a trace entry via trace_cpu_idle anyways. Also, the cpufreq/cpufreq.c PSTATE one is actually unpaired, as compared to the CSTATE ones which all have a clear start/stop. As part of this, the trace_power_frequency also becomes orphaned, so it too is deleted.

-The 'type' parameter takes one of those macros:
- . POWER_NONE = 0,
- . POWER_CSTATE = 1, /* C-State */
- . POWER_PSTATE = 2, /* Frequency change or DVFS */

-The 'state' parameter is set depending on the type:
- . Target C-state for type=POWER_CSTATE,
- . Target frequency for type=POWER_PSTATE,
