[PATCH] vfs: Use defined macro(like BITPS_PER_BYTE) in fs/file.c
Use defined macro(like BITPS_PER_BYTE) instead of some const number(like 8) in fs/file.c. So, replace 8 with BITS_PER_BYTE, 8 * sizeof(long) with BITS_PER_LONG in file fs/file.c. Since the two macro are defined, so use them. Signed-off-by: Liu Aleaxander <Aleaxander(a)gmail.com> --- �fs/file.c |�� 12 ++++++------ ... 14 Jun 2010 14:00
