"frag_align" is a u64, so presumably we want to use the high bits as
well instead of shift wrapping.

The fragment field has only 5bits in hardware and can never be more than 31,
so the correct fix would actually be using uint32_t here instead.

Changing it to uint32_t introduces a new static checker warning:

     drivers/gpu/drm/amd/amdgpu/amdgpu_vm.c:1465 amdgpu_vm_frag_ptes()
     warn: was expecting a 64 bit value instead of '~(frag_align - 1)'

Unfortunately, I get so many thousands of those I can't normally even
review that sort of bug...

Let me resend the original patch but with a modified changelog to say
that the bug is a false positive.

Ah, yes of course that's why I made it a 64bit value in the first place.

Mhm, could we use something like (u32)(1 << pages_per_frag) instead to silence the static checker warning?

It doesn't make much sense to use a 64bit shift here.
