Looks a valid change.
rlwimi  r10, r10, 0, 0x0f00 means: 
r10 = ((r10 << 0) & 0x0f00) | (r10 & ~0x0f00) which ends up being
r10 = r10 

On ISA, rlwinm is recommended for clearing high order bits.
rlwinm  r10, r10, 0, ~0x0f00 means:
r10 = (r10 << 0) & ~0x0f00

Which does exactly what the comments suggests.

FWIW:
