Is hexadecimal actually the best way to display these values? I guess it
depends how they are listed in the datasheets (if there's anything like
that for these chips?)

I found it a bit difficult to look up the meaning of the value.
HAL_DEF_WOWLAN is an enum value, the number is not set and there's no
comment. I had to count the line numbers, taking blank lines into
account... I ended up pasting the whole enum to a random C file and
printing the value of HAL_DEF_WOWLAN to make sure it was 92.

Would it make sense to explicitly set the enum values, or add them as
comments, to make such look-ups easier?
