This comment can be also removed here, because it is already stated
above with the definition of ___GFP_UNUSED_BIT.

Then again, I think that the GFP bits have never been compacted after
Neil Brown removed __GFP_ATOMIC with commit 2973d8229b78 simply because
that would mean changing definitions of all subsequent GFP flags. FWIW
I am not aware of any code that would depend on the numeric value of
___GFP_* macros, so this patch seems like a good opportunity to change
the numbering and get rid of this unused 0x200u altogether.

@Neil: I have added you to the conversation in case you want to correct
my understanding of the unused bit.

Other than that LGTM.
