Yes, so we need restricted_genmove.

I don't think so. The difference between the two patches is that
the existing setup lets you turn on restricted search and until
it is then turned off, only moves marked by the search mask will
be considered. But you have to explicitly turn it back off again.

For some purposes (generating move trees) that is what you want, 
for others (regression testing) it is not. I don't think we can 
unify the two functions but maybe we should unify their underlying
