    Why not just something like

    #define KBYTE(x) ((x)*1024ULL)
    #define MBYTE(x) ((x)*1024ULL*1024)
    #define GBYTE(x) ((x)*1024ULL*1024*1024)
    #define TBYTE(x) ((x)*1024ULL*1024*1024*1024)

    I find GBYTE(2) much easier to read than 1ULL<<31. Honestly, I would
    add a comment '/* 2G */' if I would write 1ULL<<31 in own code.

    But I'm of course not one of that super kernel hackers. ;-)
