I don't think enum bitfields are actually valid C?
Also, is there a specific reason to use bitfields at all?
It seems like it won't save all that much, and is one of the
less reliable things in C compilers in my experience,
and I believe at least compiling for ARM used to produce
code with atrocious performance for it (I think basically
it ended up doing a manual unaligned load of the unsigned).
No, I am not asking you to change it, but I sure would
be interested in the reasoning, to me it is still a
"better save yourself the pain" feature.
