It's a bug that some versions of gcc accept as `short' --- convert to
__u16 as has been done in 2.5:

D 1.3 02/10/12 17:15:29-07:00 torvalds@home.transmeta.com 4 3 1/1/743
P drivers/ide/ide-cd.h
C Fix type - it used to be "__u8 short", which previous versions
C of gcc incorrectly accepted as "short". It got fixed to __u8, but
C it really should be __u16.
