This is not safe. The bitops are defined to work on unsigned long only, so
flags should be changed to unsigned long instead, or you should use a
temporary.

Affected platforms:
- alpha: flags is unsigned int
- ia64, sh, x86_64: flags is __u32

The only affected 64-platforms are little endian, so it will silently work
after your change, though...
