Subject[PATCH v2 1/1] PCI: brcmstb: Use BIT() as __GENMASK() is for internal use only
Use BIT() as __GENMASK() is for internal use only. The rationale
of switching to BIT() is to provide better generated code. The
GENMASK() against non-constant numbers may produce an ugly assembler
code. On contrary the BIT() is simply converted to corresponding shift

Note, it's the only user of __GENMASK() in the kernel outside of its own realm.

Fixes: 3baec684a531 ("PCI: brcmstb: Accommodate MSI for older chips")

v2: switched to BIT() and elaborated why, hence not included tag
