The functionality will, but I'm implementing it differently, the model
you used to create the patch is being phased out, now we're unsing a
model that create tables from the header files where those flags are
defined, so that when a new one gets added, we get it included
automatically, please take a look at:

More specifically this one:

That will be used by one like tools/perf/trace/beauty/pkey_alloc.c, that
goes looking if the bits are set and if so, get the strings from the
table, etc.

In time pkey_alloc__scnprintf_access_rights() will be further
generalized, as all it needs is a strarray + the flags integer to
produce a simbolic or-ed flags string.

Sorry for taking so long, kept being sidetracked with other stuff...
