Yes. That's trick with sign-extension, borrowed from PHYSICAL_PAGE_MASK
definition. It helps on 32-bit with PAE properly expand the PAGE_MASK to
I'll add comment.

Other option is to include KeyID mask into _PAGE_CHG_MASK. But it means
_PAGE_CHG_MASK would need to reference *two* variables: physical_mask and
mktme_keyid_mask. I mentioned this in the commit message.
This is more efficient way to achieve the same compile-time without
referencing any variables.
