Eek. I thought they were.
-#define ALIGN4 ((u_long)4 - 1) /* 1 longword align */
-#define ALIGN8 ((u_long)8 - 1) /* 2 longword (quadword) align */
-#define ALIGN ALIGN8 /* Keep the LANCE happy... */
- offset = (offset + ALIGN) & ~ALIGN;
+ offset = ALIGN(offset, 8);
And from include/linux/cache.h:
#define ALIGN(x,a) (((x)+(a)-1)&~((a)-1))
So, we're replacing (offset + 8 - 1) & ~(8-1) = (offset + 7) & ~7
with (((offset)+(8)-1)&~((8)-1)) = ((offset+7)&~7)
I think they're the same, aren't they, except for the promotion to u_long,
which is probably bogus anyway?
