I haven't seen any problems with the cpuidle on next and 4.14-rc7 works fine.

# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu[0-1]/cpuidle/state[0-1]/usage
162283

# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu[0-1]/cpuidle/state[0-1]/time
436981763
2110484666
458260707
2121781516

# uptime
 18:50:24 up 44 min,  1 user,  load average: 0.15, 0.08, 0.07

It could be that cpuidle unmasks some other issue on the Colibri.
