    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
    but this is the job of the processor (address translation) then why do
    we have these macros
    can anyone please explain.

    Thanks and Regards
    Vivek Kutal
