I am not able to reproduce with your teo_find_shallower_state(), or teo V 7,
either. Everything is graceful now, as states are disabled:
(10 seconds per sample. Number of entries/exits per state):

State 0 State 1 State 2 State 3 State 4 Watts
0, 6, 4, 1, 414, 3.700
2, 4, 30, 3, 578, 3.700 << No load
168619, 37, 39, 4, 480, 5.600 << Transition sample
4643618, 45, 8, 1, 137, 61.200 << All idle states enabled
4736227, 40, 3, 5, 111, 61.800
1888417, 4369314, 25, 2, 89, 62.000 << Transition sample
0, 7266864, 9, 0, 0, 62.200 << state 0 disabled

0, 0, 0, 0, 9238444, 58.700
0, 0, 0, 0, 9236345, 58.600

For reference, this is kernel 4.20-rc5 (with your other proposed patches):
