This template is used a lot with (generic) netlink.
Few examples:
http://lxr.free-electrons.com/source/drivers/acpi/event.c#L62
http://lxr.free-electrons.com/source/include/uapi/linux/irda.h#L224
It is easier to maintain - adding entry in the list will automatically update MAX.

The NVM authentication can take time for ICM.
This number comes from experiments.

This is a helper function for searching the list.
The callers take and release the lock.

What is the concern here?
If it is size of bool, it doesn't matter for this struct.
It is more readable that the expected value is bool,
and it is used a lot in kernel, for example:
http://lxr.free-electrons.com/source/include/linux/pm.h#L558
