More than that... he wants no bitfields ! Right now, this code is broken
on some endians (I suspect big, dunno on what Kristian tested).

Bah, it's endian broken anyway due to bitfield (ab)use.

Note that while this is true for small constants, beware of the fact
that this is highly unrecommended for anything that doesn't fit in a
signed int. gcc has some dodgy extensions allowing non-int enums but you
don't want to go near them. Read a recent discussion with Linus & Viro
(a few days ago iirc) on lkml about it.

Since some of his constants have values up to 0x80000000, I'm not 100%
confident enum is the way to go, but if you are careful with sign, it
could still be.

In that specific case (kicking the context), it doesn't matter much.
It's not a bug per-se not to do it, though you might get better
performances by making sure it's kicked right away.

Ben.
