Mmh, yes you are right. The idle state number is part of the internals
of the cpuidle framework while the exit latency is an input (from user
or kernel).

Should it make sense to just get the resume latency in
cpuidle_use_deepest_state() and pass the value to find_deepest_state()?

It is the only code path where the constraint is not taken into account
AFAICT.

With this simple change, we can manage everything from the pm_qos API
then and this series is no longer needed.
