        Yes, you are right. I had not noticed that macro.
However, there appears to be only one place where that could
be used in my patch (in drivers/atm/iphase.c). I have modified
that file per your advice, and checked it into our source tree.
I will see what other input comes in throughout the day, and then
make a new patch (unless there is a new pre-pre- release that
incorporates all of this). Thanks for catching this!
