    You haven't pushed your system, or run it in a hostile
    environment then. There are many places where systems are run
    right up to the edge of thermal breakdown, and it's a firm
    requirement to know exactly what that edge is.

    I have a CPU that runs great up to 43C, and shuts down hard at 44C
    so I obviously want to know how close I am to that. I don't want
    rounding errors to get in the way, and I don't want changes
    between kernel revs to affect it either.

    If we've got the bitspace, keep the counters as granular as
    possible within the useable range that we're designing for.

    counter = .01 * degrees kelvin
