but we really are interested in the low bits here (lets ignore the NX 
bit for now) and the patch has been in the queue for a long time (more 
than a month), so if there was a trivial mask mixup problem it would 
have shown on the first day. So i suspect some gcc bug instead - and 
certainly the colorful mixture of types and signs in this expression 
might have surprised a new version of gcc somewhere.
