No, that's why it's confusing :-)

1U is the integer constant 1 with a type of 'unsigned int'
(cf C99 section It then has the unary negation
operator applied to it, giving (for the usual 32 bit integer
case) 0xffffffff. This is then cast from 'unsigned int'
to 'uint64_t' giving 0xffffffff as a 64 bit unsigned value.

(I had to write a test program to (a) confirm what it was
going to return and (b) that it would be the same thing on
both 32 and 64 bit systems...)

I have no opinion on what the return value actually ought
to be.
