Sure will drop it.

Make sense. However, since we are on the path to modify ext2 buffered-io
code as well to move to iomap interface, I wouldn't bother too much as

left-shift has a higher precedence. But let me make it more clear in
next rev.

Sure, will see to it.

It's just avoids any confusion this way.
