No comments so far about this part.

I think your approach is better
since putting BIT* macros into a single header
is more consistent.

So, I will ask Andrew to drop mine.


However, I think <linux/bits.h> will make more sense
than <asm-generic/bits.h>

These macros are really arch-agnostic.
So, we would not expect to have <asm/bits.h>
that could fall back to <asm-generic/bits.h>, right?
