Nuts, that doesn't do what I intend, and is part of a failed experiment
that I thought I had reverted.

Assume that in the next version the mask handling will be similar to
line_set_values_locked in patch 09.

i.e. 
	for (i = 0; i < line->num_descs; i++)
		if (lv.mask & BIT_ULL(i))
			num_get++;

and the subsequent mask tests will be against lv.mask instead of the
mask bitmap declared above (which will be gone).

I won't do a v4 just yet though - there is sure to be other things
to go in there.

Cheers,
Kent.
