Ah, sorry for my previous reply. I see you have seen gpio-generic. :-)

No, the original calculation is correct. BE and LE bit numbering are
opposite, bit Linux always uses LE numbers as far as bit masks are
concerned. Therefore pin 0 is the most significant bit, and
pin (nr_bits-1) is the least significant bit.
