I'm not sure that actually helps, 1 << nr_slots is still evaluating as a 32 bit value, so that final cast does not may any difference. Anyhow, since nr_slots is less than 32 then keeping it the way it was is fine. > > David > -- > To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe kernel-janitors" in > the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org > More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html >
