The dtpm is based on the powercap framework which deals with microwatts
and the functions are expecting u64 values.

The division here happens when there is an update of the dtpm tree which
occurs rarely (at boot time or hotplug).

As the power model is in the vast majority on 64b platforms, the effort
to optimize to u32 sounds not worth, especially that the 32b platforms
supporting the energy model are now obsolete.
