I think Jan thought that the MASK value you defined wasn't meant to be a
single flag, but for all the flags; i.e., that if we added flags in bits
1 and 2, that MASK would become 0x7 rather than 0x1.  And I agree that
there's not much point to having such a mask defined in the public header.

But what I'm doing above is making explicit what you have already; i.e.,
you just set XEN_DOMCTL_DEV_RDM_RELAXED to '1'; the reader has to sort
of infer that the reason '1' is chosen is that it's setting bit 0.
Doing it the way I suggest makes it more clear that this is meant to be
a bitfield, and '0' has been allocated.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, Jan.
