We really to figure out if we need bitfields at all, and if the byte swapping operations really make sense doing this way any more.

Its really a performance optimization and should be treated as is, if it doesn't work, it should be taken out.

Can we have this discussion on heimdal-discuss/and cross post, having it in two places will only confuse people.
