You think wrong.

I typed in the example and commented right under it. The old code is
much more understandable than the new code. The old code shows what bits
get set and cleared, the new code uses masks, sometimes hidden behind
defines, which people have to look up to understand what's going on. And
then look at the function definition to know which arg which is. And so
on and so on...

But I'm going to stop wasting my time with this now. I gave you enough
arguments against.
