I just collected and forwarded the code from Philip...
the better not to lose such stuff! :)

In this case I think that'd be preferable; see what those macros
expand to on pxa27x CPUs.

Hey, at least we've started using these new fangled "function prototypes"!

I remember when we had to walk five miles through LINT every morning.
Uphill. Then it was another five miles uphill on the way back, through
a maze of twisty octal contants like "8" and "9". We didn't even have
void pointers. UIDs were eight bits. This ANSI stuff you new kids are
using ... you've got it easy!!
