Please add the link in the bugzilla to the comments here - this is the
reason why stuff is being uploaded in the first place, because those
vendor sites tend to change and those links become stale with time.

Yes please - typedefs are used only in very specific cases.

We use defines - not magic numbers. For example


The 8 is probably


because you have GPA bits [50:12] and an RMP entry is 16 bytes, i.e., 1 << 4.

With defines it is actually clear what the computation is doing - with
naked numbers not really.

It does, kinda, but in the pseudocode of those new insns in APM v3. From

RMP_ENTRY_PA = RMP_BASE + 0x4000 + (SYSTEM_PA / 0x1000) * 16

and that last

/ 0x1000 * 16

is actually

>> 12 - 4

i.e., the >> 8 shift.
