Bug Description

Just installed powertop 2.1-0ubuntu1 on raring on a fresh install. `sudo powertop` fails to start, with the following messages on console (some had to be captured with `script`).

Cannot load from file /var/cache/powertop/saved_results.powertop
Cannot load from file /var/cache/powertop/saved_parameters.powertop
Cannot load from file /var/cache/powertop//var/cache/powertop/saved_parameters.powertop

No such luck. It *still* fails with the "msr reg not found" error and
powertop still exits.
