Subject: [PATCH 3/7] sched: update the idle statistics in get_cpu_idle_time_us()

Right now, get_cpu_idle_time_us() only reports the idle statistics
upto the point the CPU entered last idle; not what is valid right now.

This patch adds an update of the idle statistics to get_cpu_idle_time_us(),
so that calling this function always returns statistics that are accurate
at the point of the call.

This includes resetting the start of the idle time for accounting purposes
to avoid double accounting.
