Comment wrong in libc/include/sys/wait.h ?

Hi all,

there's a comment in libc/include/sys/wait.h describing the format of a 
status. According to this comment, there's 2 bytes of info and 2 bytes 
of code in a status. The following macros, however, seem to work on the 
assumption that info and code are a single byte each.

Do you agree that there's an inconsistency? Can I assume that the macros 
are right and the comment is wrong?
