  Sign-extend the 48-bit AMD PMC counter before treating it to a 64-bit
  2's compliment.
  The 2's compliment transform is done so a "count down" sampling interval
  can be converted into a "count up" PMC value. a 2's complimented 'count down'
  value is written to the PMC counter; then the read-back counter is reverted
  via another 2's compliment.
