Works for me, however:

unsigned

otherwise you'll get an extra instruction to sign extend it, which is
daft (yes, i've been staring at GCC output far too much).

Also, gcc-9 does worse (like 1 byte iirc) with:

	rctx += !!(pc & (NMI_MASK));
	rctx += !!(pc & (NMI_MASK | HARDIRQ_MASK));
	rctx += !!(pc & (NMI_MASK | HARDIRQ_MASK | SOFTIRQ_OFFSET));

but gcc-10 doesn't seem to care.
