Picking a random driver for this comment, it applies to many of them.

I think this creates a VLA? Can't you, for the bit-count, just go with
BITS_PER_TYPE(unsigned)? Or whatever is appropriate for the driver
in question.

Also, I find that where you use DECLARE_BITMAP, the _bitmap suffix is
just noise and I would very much like to zap it.

Cheers,
Peter
