FIELD_GET(_mask, _val) and FIELD_PREP(_mask, _val) in include/linux/bitfield.h are similar to our BITS_GET() and BITS_SET().  However in our case, mask##_LOC is a known constant defined in dlb_regs.h.  So we don't need to use _buildin_ffs(mask) to calculate the location of mask as FIELD_GET() and FIELD_PREP() do.  We can still use FIELD_GET and FIELD_PREP, but our macros are a little more efficient. Would it be OK to use them? 

Thanks
Mike
