Can the cocci script that generated this warning

scripts/coccinelle/misc/orplus.cocci

be dropped or improved to validate the likelihood that
the defines or constants used are more likely than
not are bit values?

Maybe these should be defined as hex or BIT or BIT_ULL
or GENMASK or the like?


Right now it seems it just tests for two constants.
