In current case, AVIC_LOGICAL_ID_ENTRY_VALID_MASK is used to calculate
the value of new_entry with type of u32. So the definition here is not
harmful.

Also, I did a quick grep and found similar definition (1 << 31) is popular
in the whole kernel tree.

The reason to make this change is not that strong to me. Would you
minding sharing more reason behind this change?
