Subject: Re: [PATCH] atm: he: fix sign-extension overflow on large shift

From: Colin King <>

> From: Colin Ian King <>
> Shifting the 1 by exp by an int can lead to sign-extension overlow when
> exp is 31 since 1 is an signed int and sign-extending this result to an
> unsigned long long will set the upper 32 bits.  Fix this by shifting an
> unsigned long.
> Detected by cppcheck:
> (warning) Shifting signed 32-bit value by 31 bits is undefined behaviour
