Subject[PATCH 1/3] cpuidle: play_idle: Make play_idle more flexible
Date
The play_idle function has two users, the intel powerclamp and the
idle_injection.

The idle injection cooling device uses the function via the
idle_injection powercap's APIs. Unfortunately, play_idle is currently
limited by the idle state depth: by default the deepest idle state is
selected. On the ARM[64] platforms, most of the time it is the cluster
idle state, the exit latency and the residency can be very high. That
reduces the scope of the idle injection usage because the impact on
the performances can be very significant.

If the idle injection cycles can be done with a shallow state like a
retention state, the cooling effect would eventually give similar
results than the cpufreq cooling device.

In order to prepare the function to receive an idle state parameter,
let's replace the 'use_deepest_state' boolean field with 'use_state'
and use this value to enter the specific idle state.

The current code keeps the default behavior which is go to the deepest
idle state.
