This is just a bug in the driver, if it's idle_bias_off then it really
should be starting in _OFF or at the very least starting actually in
_STANDBY (including taking the runtime reference) rather than partially

This is really not a good idea at all, it's just adding new special
cases and making the code more obscure.
