Maybe I am missing something here, but from what I understood,
the vantage point of using GENMASK for the masks
was so that we could get rid of open coding the shift constants and use the
FIELD_PREP macro to place the value in the field of a descriptor.
This should work for the static masks. So something like --

-       ((u64)0xff << IRDMA_UDA_QPSQ_INLINEDATALEN_S)

-#define LS_64(val, field)      (((u64)(val) << field ## _S) & (field ## _M))
+#define LS_64(val, field)      (FIELD_PREP(val,(field ## _M)))

However we have device's dynamically computed bitfield mask array and shifts
for some WQE descriptor fields --
see icrdma_init_hw.c

we still need to use the custom macro FLD_LS_64 without FIELD_PREP in this case
as FIELD_PREP expects compile time constants.
+#define FLD_LS_64(dev, val, field)	\
+	(((u64)(val) << (dev)->hw_shifts[field ## _S]) & (dev)->hw_masks[field 
+## _M])
And the shifts are still required for these fields which causes a bit of
