        A missing line break in src/share/man/man3/bits.3 causes
        BITS(3) to contain the peculiar sentence
                Note that __SHIFTOUT_MASK(m, =) __SHIFTOUT(m, m).
        Clearly this should be
                Note that __SHIFTOUT_MASK(m) = __SHIFTOUT(m, m).


        Type `man BITS'.


        Apply the following patch:

--- bits.3      03 Sep 2006 00:04:02 +0000      1.2
+++ bits.3      19 Aug 2008 21:14:41 +0000

 bitfield can hold.
 No side-effects.
 Note that
-.Fn __SHIFTOUT_MASK "m" =
 .Fn __SHIFTOUT "m" "m" .
