Yeah, that would be another option.

As we're probably doing this type of operation quite often, I made a
macro out of it (which hopefully works for all situations):

/* If 'cond' is true this macro sets the bit(s) specified by 'bits' in the
 * 'reg' variable, otherwise it clears those bits.
 * Examples:
 * reg16 = ONOFF(conf->ide0_enable, reg16, (1 << 5));
 * reg16 = ONOFF(conf->ide0_enable, reg16, (FOO | BAR));
/* TODO: Move into some global header file? */

#define ONOFF(cond,reg,bits) ((cond) ? ((reg) | (bits)) : ((reg) & ~(bits)))

Usage example (from my other patch):

reg8 = pci_read_config8(dev, UDMACTL);
reg8 = ONOFF(conf->ide1_drive0_udma33_enable, reg8, SSDE0);
reg8 = ONOFF(conf->ide1_drive1_udma33_enable, reg8, SSDE1);
pci_write_config8(dev, UDMACTL, reg8);

Shall we create an include/macros.h file with some generic, useful
macros? Stuff like the above, and maybe something like:

#define MIN(a,b) ...
#define MAX(a,b) ...
#define ARRAY_SIZE(a) (sizeof(a) / sizeof((a)[0]))

This type of common macros (not too many of course) will quite likely
improve the code readability a lot.
