Currently im studying IPC for L4/fiasco. I opened the exercise solution from
dresden and try to study the coding and its flow. So far, i manage to
understand but there is one part that im not certain which is the
L4_IPC_DOPE(). As stated in the exercise solution, the L4_IPC_DOPE is
initiated as L4_IPC_DOPE(0,1) which is assigned to the l4_msgdope_t

typedef struct
    l4_msgdope_t size_dope;
}message_t; <---there are other variables initialize in this structure but i
just shorten it to the issue.

message_t m;

m->size_dope = L4_IPC_DOPE(0,1);

I would like to know, what does this call (L4_IPC_DOPE) do and which file
does this function is located. Is it in types.h? Hope anyone can assist me
since im new in this field. Thanks.
