This looks sane as far as I can see without having access to the
documentation.

BTW, I saw you also extended the masks in the Linux (guest) code (at
least, I see patches queued on the s390 features branch...) You also
might want to adjust the "Linux uses 4 byte masks" comment in the code
in the future.

Before I queue this, I'd like some r-bs/a-bs by folks with access to
the documentation.
