Thanks for noticing. The BUILD_BUG_ON() check got lost when I moved the
patch to an earlier place and changed the declaration to fixed size
array like other name tables have. But you are right, losing the check
would be too high price for the uniformity.

Right, it would (with double quotes for second argument). As I wrote the
macro for bits which don't represent actual link modes, it never occured
to me that it can be also used for this special case.

I'll wait until tomorrow to see if there are more comments and send v2.
