Subject: [PATCH V2 3/5] cpuidle: idle: menu: Don't reflect when a state selection failed

In the current code, the check to reflect or not the outcoming state is done
against the idle state which has been chosen and its value.

Instead of doing a check in each of the reflect functions, just don't call reflect
if something went wrong in the idle path.
