Subject: [PATCH] leds: trigger: Disable CPU trigger on PREEMPT_RT

The CPU trigger is invoked on ARM from CPU-idle. That trigger later
invokes led_trigger_event() which may invoke the callback of the actual driver.
That driver can acquire a spinlock_t which is okay on kernel without
PREEMPT_RT. On PREEMPT_RT enabled kernel this lock is turned into a sleeping
lock and must not be acquired with disabled interrupts.

Disable the CPU trigger on PREEMPT_RT.
