could you please be more concrete? What will happen
with kernel after 2.6.28 that make it (this macro) possible
to be touched? The only problem I see now is that binary
operation error you pointed (thanks!) but nothing else!
actually this mask arguments are being applied in not
that obvious way indeed but I'm not sure if it'll be better
to add additional args signaling that a mask should be applied.
If _you_ are planning to continue playing with APIC/IO-APIC
'till 2.6.28 - just say that and I could stop any attempts.
