While the patch is generally acceptable, the changelog is not.

First, what does "undelying" mean?

Second, you seem to be talking about the cases in which exit latencies of
idle states are not small relative to the system suspend/resume time, so
without any specific examples this is not really convincing.

Also, potentially, there is another reason to make this change, which is
that on some systems i2c (or similar) controllers may be requisite for
idle state entry and exit, so it may make sense in general to prevent
cpuidle from being used over the entire suspend and resume of the
system. However, without any example of a system in which that matters
it still is not convincing enough IMO.
