It's especially hard because we describe both the bits of the usage mask
and the bits of the bit numbers of the usage mask. The resulting description
can only be naughty :-)

That said I can probably clarify that in lockdep_internals.h on further
patches.

A few comments though:

So by bitnr1 you're referring to direction, right?

In which case we can perhaps reformulate:

So for all bits whose number have LOCK_ENABLED_* set (bitnr1 == 1), we can create the
mask with those bit numbers using LOCK_USED_IN_* (bitnr1 == 0) instead by
subtracting the bit number by 2, or shifting the mask right by 2.

And same would go for below.

Same here:

As above, we clear bitnr0 (LOCK_*_READ off) with bitmask ops. First, for all bits
with bitnr1 set (LOCK_ENABLED_*) , add those with bitnr1 cleared (LOCK_USED_IN_*).
And then mask out all bitnr1.

Not sure I'm making things clearer but at least that's some more pointers
to enum lock_usage_bit (defined on headers where I should add more layout
explanations, especially to make it clear we play with bit number bits :-s )

Thanks.
