Static variable declaration in a header file makes me a bit uneasy. I know
it is const so a compiler should optimize this to a constant but still
there will likely be some side-effects (see the 0-day warning).

Honestly, given these are just three flags I'd just don't overengineer this
and have:

#define FSNOTIFY_MARK_FLAG_IGNORED_SURV_MODIFY \
			(1 << FSN_MARK_FL_BIT_IGNORED_SURV_MODIFY)
...
