This one is kind of interesting. See below.

That is only one of two divides going on. Firstly we divide by 1000 here,
then we provide it in fractional form which means that the actual value you get
from sysfs etc is
val/val2. It's this one we are protecting against rounding error on I guess.
Now this is even less obviously because it's not 18000 either, but
18000 * 2^CROS_EC_SENSOR_BITS.

Which ultimately means neither answer is correct. Hmm.
Not totally sure what the right answer actually is..
