cpuidle: Fix incorrect optimization

commit 672917dc ("cpuidle: menu governor: reduce latency on exit")
added an optimization, where the analysis on the past idle period moved
from the end of idle, to the beginning of the new idle.

Unfortunately, this optimization had a bug where it zeroed one key
variable for new use, that is needed for the analysis.  The fix is
simple, zero the variable after doing the work from the previous idle.

During the audit of the code that found this issue, another issue was
also found; the ->measured_us data structure member is never set, a
local variable is always used instead.
