Well, if its a CPU core thing, then it's even easier - the proc-*.S
file can handle it just fine (because that's where the WFI code is.)
Just delete the contents of the processor specific idle function, IOW:

* cpu_fa526_do_idle()
.align 4
mcr p15, 0, r0, c7, c0, 4 @ Wait for interrupt
mov pc, lr

remove the WFI from there.
