Thanks Michal,

However, kbuild found a problem with this definition on certain configs.
Consider a config where,
BITS_PER_LONG = 32 (32bit config)
PAGE_SHIFT = 16 (64K pages)
This results in the negative shift value.
Not something I would not immediately think of, but a valid config.

The definition has been changed to,
#define PGOFF_LOFFT_MAX \
(((1UL << (PAGE_SHIFT + 1)) - 1) << (BITS_PER_LONG - (PAGE_SHIFT + 1)))

as discussed here,
