/**
* DOC: Exponentially Weighted Moving Average (EWMA)
*
* These are generic functions for calculating Exponentially Weighted Moving
* Averages (EWMA). We keep a structure with the EWMA parameters and a scaled
* up internal representation of the average value to prevent rounding errors.
* The factor for scaling up and the exponential weight (or decay rate) have to
* be specified thru the init fuction. The structure should not be accessed
* directly but only thru the helper functions.

* ewma_init() - Initialize EWMA parameters
* @avg: Average structure
* @factor: Factor to use for the scaled up internal value. The maximum value
* of averages can be ULONG_MAX/(factor*weight). For performance reasons
* factor has to be a power of 2.
* @weight: Exponential weight, or decay rate. This defines how fast the
* influence of older values decreases. For performance reasons weight has
* to be a power of 2.
