Well, things like

> +        BYTE    bControl : 4;

aren't really correct since the bit order is implementation-defined.
But if even the OS/2 developers themselves see it as so dead that they
expect that nobody will ever write a new compiler for it and do not care
about compatibility with possible future gcc versions I won't waste my
time on it (though that leaves the question if the platform is worth
including code for it).
Also quite a few structs are duplicated again in the cddb patch, which
again will complicate things when using a compiler (or
different version or different compiler flags) that somehow lays the
struct out differently.
IMHO this coding style makes maintenance difficult for no good reason,
but I don't have the time to discuss this forever.
Feel free to apply it as long as I don't get bothered with this code,
