cpuidle is currently optional, that is why the two level hierarchy
is there so that you can still have simple idle selection without it.

% size drivers/cpuidle/*.o
text data bss dec hex filename
5514 1416 44 6974 1b3e drivers/cpuidle/built-in.o

Adding it unconditionally would add ~7k to everyone who wants idle functions.

I think making it unconditional would require putting it on a serious
diet first.
