[PATCH v1 1/5] cpuidle: menu: Clean up variables usage in menu_select()

From: Leo Yan
Date: Sun Aug 12 2018 - 12:10:09 EST

The usage for two variables 'data->predicted_us' and 'expected_interval'
in menu_select() are confused, especially these two variables are
assigned with each other: firstly 'data->predicted_us' is assigned to
the minimum value between 'data->predicted_us' and 'expected_interval',
so it presents the prediction period for taking account different
factors and include consideration for expected interval; but later
'data->predicted_us' is assigned back to 'expected_interval' and from
then on the function uses 'expected_interval' to select idle state; this
results in 'expected_interval' has two different semantics between the
top half and the bottom half of the same function.

This patch is to clean up the usage of these two variables, we always
use 'data->predicted_us' to present the idle duration predictions and
it can be used to compare with idle state target residency or tick
boundary for choosing idle state; we purely use 'expected_interval' to
record the expected interval value, which is mainly for interval
interrupt estimation.
