Ouch!

This is from the original user pkeys implementation.

That's fine, if some comments get added.  It looks correct to me but
probably compiles down to pretty much the same thing as what was there.
 FWIW, I prefer the explicit masking off of two bit values to implicit
masking off with a mask generated from PKR_BITS_PER_PKEY.  It's
certainly more compact, but I usually don't fret over the lines of code.
