I still didn't get the grouping you implied with this...

sizeof() here is misleading, We talk about bits, BITS_PER_LONG (which is 32),
here it's better to be explicit that reading more than 32 bits at a time on
32-bit platform will return 0. Actually what you need is to describe...

...this return in the Return section.

Ditto.
