This is a pointless change.  Those bits vary from chip to chip, and many
combinations are not valid.

That is not correct.
The bug was in the code you changed, not in the constant.

An issue is cleaning up the structure to support the chip in a more regular
manner.  This was done almost a year ago.  The drivers after v0.91k have a
cleaner media selection struction.
