SubjectNeed for SHIFT and MASK
Hi ,
While browsing through the code i came across macros like SHIFT , MASK
, SIZE which are used in conversion from linear address to physical
address
but this is the job of the processor (address translation) then why do
we have these macros
can anyone please explain.
