Hi Sasha,

I can put in further explanation but first the uv() function returns 1
left shifted by the UV #:

static inline int uv(int uvtype)
{
/* uv(0) is "any" */
if (uvtype >= 0 && uvtype <= 30)
return 1 << uvtype;
return 1;
}

The "is_uv_hubbed(x)" and "is_uv_hubless(x)" AND's the incoming arg with
the actual uv type:

int is_uv_hubbed(int uvtype)
{
return (uv_hubbed_system & uvtype);
}

The uv_hub{bed,less}_system is set to 1 left shifted by the UV # plus in
bit 0 is a '1' to indicate "any" UV (as in "is_uv_hubbed(1)" is any UV
hubbed system). Hubbed indicates a hubbed system, and hubless indicates
a hubless system, it cannot be both but can be neither.

(There are only hubbed versions of UV1 and UV2.)

Lastly (-2) translates to 0xffff...fffe (note bit 0 is clear to avoid
the "any" bit. So it is looking for a a hubbed or hubless UV system
that is less than UV4 meaning only UV4,5,6...qualify, hence this comment:

>>> + /* Select only UV4 (hubbed or hubless) and higher */
if (UV is less than UV4 either hubbed or hubless)
return; /* does not have an extended UVsystab */

Have you a suggestion on what would make it more clear? Perhaps instead
of -2 I should use a hex mask?

Thanks,
Mike
