1. Please update the patch summary & description to reflect that,
please see commit 13990cf8a180 for the reference:

    ide: use BIT() macro for defining bit-flags
    The BIT() macro is available for defining the required bit-flags.
    Since it operates on an unsigned value and expands to an unsigned result,
    using it, instead of an expression like (1 << x), also fixes the problem
    of shifting a signed 32-bit value by 31 bits (e.g. 1 << 31).
