I'd just do:
	rate_mask[0] = ratr_bitmap;
	rate_mask[1] = ratr_bitmap >>= 8;
	rate_mask[2] = ratr_bitmap >>= 8;
	rate_mask[3] = (ratr_bitmap >> 8) & 0xf | ratr_index << 4;
which is, of course, little endian.
Which means it is different from the original code on big-endian systems.
So changing this here ought to require a change when the data is read.
So this either fixes, or adds, an endianness bug.
