Thank you!

I don't think this actually causes problems. At least, no additional
problems. These users will successfully clear __GFP_DMA and __GFP_HIGHMEM
no matter what values GFP_DMA and GFP_HIGHMEM have; the only problem will
be if someone calls them with a zone type they're not expecting (eg DMA32
for the first one or DMA for the second; or MOVABLE for either of them).
The thing is, they're already buggy in those circumstances.

How about:

+#define __GFP_HIGHMEM ((__force gfp_t)OPT_ZONE_HIGHMEM ^ ZONE_NORMAL)
-#define __GFP_MOVABLE ((__force gfp_t)___GFP_MOVABLE) /* ZONE_MOVABLE allowed */
+#define __GFP_MOVABLE ((__force gfp_t)ZONE_MOVABLE ^ ZONE_NORMAL | \
+ ___GFP_MOVABLE)

Then I think you can just make it:

static inline enum zone_type gfp_zone(gfp_t flags)
{
return ((__force int)flags & ___GFP_ZONE_MASK) ^ ZONE_NORMAL;
}

You should be able to delete GFP_ZONES_SHIFT too.
