The injected idle duration should be greater than the idle state min
residency, otherwise we end up consuming more energy and potentially invert
the mitigation effect.

In function __cpuidle_cooling_register(), if
of_property_read_u32(np, "exit-latency-us", &latency_us) is failed, then
maybe we should not use latency_us. In this case, a zero latency_us for
forced_idle_latency_limit_ns is better than UMAX_INT. It means to use
governors in the usual way.
