I know. I looked. But I can't find any reference
other than that. On page 207 of your book it says
"Reserved (must be zero)" but apparently the reservation
is for MS. :-) Do you remember where you got the
note that bit 4 was reserved? I just can find any
reference to it in any of the old docs I have.

I'm about at the end of my curiosity this time around.
Wish I had better closure. Thanks for the chat.
