From: Andre Przywara <andre.przywara@amd.com>

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1009086

On high CPU load the accumulating values in the running_avg_cap
register are very low (below 10), so averaging them too early leads
to unnecessary poor output resolution. Since we pretend to output
micro-Watt we better keep all the bits we have as long as possible.
