This cpupower update for Linux 5.10-rc1 consists of minor fixes for
spelling and speeding up generating git version string which will
in turn speedup compiles.
cpupower: speed up generating git version string

The variable VERSION is expanded for every use of CFLAGS. This causes
"git describe" to get called multiple times on the kernel tree, which
can be quite slow.

The git revision does not change during build, so we can use simple
variable expansion to set VERSION.
