Yup, that's the plan:

(0 << 55): AFBC
(1 << 55): This "non-category" for U-Interleaved
(1 << 54): Whatever the next category is
(3 << 54): Whatever comes after that
(1 << 53): Maybe we'll get here someday
...

I didn't want to explicitly reserve some high bits, because we've no
idea how many to reserve. This way, we can assign exactly as many
high bits as we need, when we need them. If any of the "modes" start
encroaching towards the high bits, we'll have to make a decision at
that point.

Also, this is the only U-Interleaved format (that I know of), so it's
not worth calling bit 55 "The U-Interleaved bit" because that would be
a waste of space. It's more like the "misc" bit, but that's not a
useful name to enshrine in UAPI.

Note that isn't the same as the "not-AFBC bit", because we may well
have something in the future which is neither AFBC nor "misc".

We've been very careful in our code to enforce all
undefined/unrecognised bits to be zero, to ensure that this works.

It's U-Interleaved, obviously ;-)
