libceph: be explicit in masking bottom 16 bits
Alex Elder [Fri, 29 Mar 2013 19:28:03 +0000 (14:28 -0500)]
In ceph_osdc_build_request() there is a call to cpu_to_le16() which
provides a 64-bit value as its argument.  Because of the implied
byte swapping going on it looked pretty suspect to me.

At the moment it turns out the behavior is well defined, but masking
off those bottom bits explicitly eliminates this distraction, and is
in fact more directly related to the purpose of the message header's
data_off field.

This resolves:
