Hi Yuval.

No idea.  It's certainly an ugly macro.

This does have a fallthrough path though when
(rc == 0  && next == VFOP_VERIFY_PEND) so
maybe there should be a break after most all
uses of this macro anyway.  When next is
VFOP_VERIFY_PEND, then a "fall-through" comment
would be appropriate.

cheers, Joe
