True, the EM is registering platform with 1mW precision, but 1uW
precision makes more sense for internal EAS calculation. I don't
force platforms to report 1uW power, I just want to operate on
it internally. PowerCap and DTPM also operate internally on 1uW,
so it's not that unrealistic that some kernel components want
better resolution.

But as Peter suggested, we might skip 32bit platforms for this issue.
I have to discussed this internally.
