thermal/drivers/cpu_cooling: workaround cpuidle time calculation error

For cpuidle_cooling_runtime() returning 0, no idle-injection is
applied. For an idle injection percentage of 0, this makes sense. But
this happends for the idle injection percentage of 100 too, which is

The documented calculation: ((idle_cycle * 100) / state) - idle_cycle
results 0 for state being 100. For "state" from 0 to 99, the thermal
driver throttles accordingly and keeps the CPUs cool. When switching
to 100, it stops cooling, we see a jump up in temperature and the CPU
heats up until it shuts down.

Work around this problem by keeping the "state" at 99 for calculations,
never reaching 100. The user interface still reaches 100, but there
is no formal connection to actual data and the UI. It's just a unified
range that can be implemented in various ways.
