It's a bug.  It's a trick that Tridge used for developers to make sure 
that BOOLs and NT_STATUS codes didn't get confused when passing the 
return value up the control stack.  Works fine with gcc.  I don't
have my Alpha box up and running right now so I can't look into it.
abartlet was going to look at it IIRC.
