Yep, this is what I was suggesting, agree that bitwise is a little easier, and
specially after having separate Rx/Tx APIs there are enough room in the
variable, so ok with your suggestion.
But please reserve some additional room future vectorisation modes, I would say
overall 14 would be good, so first word can be for modes.
