Ah, when I was looking at Boris's patch, it lead me to one more spot
that was missed with the off_t type - inside the function
update_msr_sum(), the offset is also stored in a variable of type int,
and as a result the background update for AMD's MSR when turbostat is
used with long durations won't work. (It's skipped because of the
offset < 0 check).
