ACPI: processor: mv processor_core.c processor_driver.c

The ACPI processor driver can be built as a module. But it has
pieces of code that should always be built statically into the

The plan is for processor_core.c to contain the static bits while
processor_driver.c contains the module-like bits.

Since the bulk of the code in the current processor_core.c is
module-like, first step is to rename the file to processor_driver.c

Next step will re-create processor_core.c and cherry-pick out
the static bits.
