Subject[PATCH] platform/x86: intel_pmc_core: Report slp_s0 residency range
The PMC driver performs a 32-bit read on the sleep s0 residency counter,
followed by a hard-coded multiplication to convert into microseconds.
The maximum value this counter could have would be 0xffffffff*0x64
microseconds, which by my calculations is about 4.9 days. This is well
within a reasonable time period to observe an overflow.

Usermode consumers watching slp_s0_residency_usec need to be aware of
overflows, but have no idea what the maximum value of this counter is,
given the hardcoded multiply of a 32-bit value by

Expose a slp_s0_residency_usec_range to usermode as well, which returns
the maximum value this counter could have. Consumers can use this to
manage rollovers.

Note: I also looked at a similar bit of functionality in
intel_pmc_s0ix_counter_read(), but noticed it's doing a 64-bit register
access. Is the counter being read here in pmc_core_dev_state_get()
(weird name btw) actually 64-bits long? If so, we can abandon this change
and just create a fix to return the full extended value.
