I've recently become a fan of <linux/bitfield.h> I think this would
be easier on the eyes as:

#define ERST_EXEC_TIMING_MAX	GENMASK_ULL(63, 32)

then this becomes:

		timeout = FIELD_GET(ERST_EXEC_TIMING_MAX, erst_erange.timings) *
			  NSEC_PER_MSEC;

But that's just a matter of style.  Otherwise the patch looks fine.
