Under what cases is y sent as 0, and why do we want to report it as 0 to
userspace?

It's getting really hard to read the bit transformations with a macro.
I'd prefer an approach that splits the computation. Maybe:

hw->y = bit_manipulations;
hw->y = INVERT_Y(hw->y);

(could use a temporary variable too)

Or maybe define a static inline function that takes the hw state as an arg:

hw->y = bit_manipulations;
fix_y(hw);

I'd prefer this implementation if every scenario involved manipulating
the y value of the hw state struct.

Also, it would be great if you could add your explanation of why Y is
inverted as a comment above INVERT_Y (or whatever function/macro it
eventually becomes).

Thanks!
