More insane "u64" - and it's *incorrect* too.

#define BIT(nr) (1UL << (nr))

fundamentally means that "BIT()" can only work on up to "unsigned long".

So this odd use of u64 seems to be a disease. It only uses more memory
(and more CPU) for no obvious reason.

u64 is not some "default type". It's expensive and shouldn't be used
unless you have a *reason* for it.
