SubjectRe: save_flags() should take unsigned long

You mean typedef unsigned long flags_t;

However, people will still write:

{
int flags;

save_flags(flags);

because 'int' is faster to type than 'flags_t'. About the only way
you're going to stop it dead is to do:

typedef struct { unsigned long val; } flags_t;

and then save_flags(x)/restore_flags(x) use (x).val
