    Do I? You probably have a shaming example in mind (PAGE_MAPPING_ANON?
    that's a hybrid case where using + and - helped minimize the casting);
    but in general I'd agree with you that it's |= for setting flag bits.

    Hmm, Eric's FUT_OFF_INODE is hybrid too, that might justify the +=

    I feel a warm glow. Nobody ever called me a style guru before.


    p.s. Please don't interpret this as any useful contribution to
    reviewing Eric's futex work: seems sensible, but I've hardly looked.
