For me sounds like a part of this change, though weakly tighten to the
main purpose.
Otherwise in the middle of the series you introduce some bogus stuff
(not sure if compiler or some static analyzers would warn about it).

This part, by the way, potentially can be split into preparatory
patch. Please, double check if it possible to do this way.

In general, yes and no. In this case it would increase readability and
assignment inside conditionals is not the best practice.

Hmm...
If you increment the variable, it would become 2^n, then 2^n + 1, ...
which in unsigned form quite far from -1.

So, this check is against revolving the value.
Otherwise you are using atomic_t as unsigned type indeed.

But in case of use you assign signed to unsigned which would not
overflow, so, the casting is superfluous.

(and I would rather go with unsigned int type instead of unsigned if
it fits style of the module)
