I suspect the mask is there in the first place for extra protection
against too big addresses going to the TCE table (or/and for virtial vs
physical addresses). Using 52bit mask makes no sense for anything, you
could just drop the mask and let c compiler deal with 64bit "uint" as it
is basically a 4K page address anywhere in the 64bit space. Thanks,
