Yes have to agree odd. Somebody famous in Computer Science said that
debugging was twice as difficult as writing code, so why would you
write the cleverest code you possibly could, or something like that.
That's what I thought when I now looked at that line of code.

I've been going through this driver cleaning up header files first.
Once those are sorted I was going to turn to the C and try get my
head around the logic. I'll have to look at the functionality of that
bpacket_toself variable but a bitwise operation does look odd.
