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 and the idle injection would
make sense only if the frequency scaling fails to cool down the CPU by
dropping the static leakage and force the CPU to regain part of its
thermal capacity.

If the idle injection cycles are done with a shallow state like a
retention state, the cooling effect can 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.
