a) is...() must be able to deal with any value that fits into unsigned char
and with EOF. Behaviour on anything else is undefined, so their argument
is obviously bogus.

b) mask[__c & 255] is _not_ a solution, simply because EOF and 255 might
have different properties. Doesn't apply to kernel, but our is...()
do not bother with EOF at all. Userland ones have to.
