If I understood well the Gwendal's patch the problem that we're trying to solve
is that current calculation is not closer from the float calculation.

For 1000dps, the result should be:

(1000 * pi ) / 180 >> 15 ~= 0.000532632218

But with current calculation we get

$ cat scale
0.000547890

With that patch (modifying the offset to avoid the rounding error) we get a
closer result

$ cat scale
0.000532631

So, what we're trying to do is have val/val2 closer to the real value. Makes
this sense to you or I'm missing something? I can improve the commit message if
it's not clear.
