SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/3] ieee80211: Replace bit shifts with the BIT() macro for WLAN_CAPABILITY_*.
The "document" refers to the file in which the changes were made
('include/linux/ieee80211.h').

I tend to try to split my commits into the smallest logically related
changes possible, hence the three patch series. This particular case
may be a little on the extreme side, but if the maintainer desires,
they can always squash them together or ask me to resubmit as one
patch.
