Sorry about that, it seems it's only triggered by gcc-9, that's why I
missed it.

I don't understand how you mean this? You can't use l before you have
defined GENMASK_INPUT_CHECK to take l as input? Am I missing something?

How about the following (with an added comment about why the casts are
necessary):

diff --git a/include/linux/bits.h b/include/linux/bits.h

The __GENMASK macro is only valid for values of h and l between 0 and 63
(or 31, if unsigned long is 32 bits). Negative values or values >=
sizeof(unsigned long) (or unsigned long long for GENMASK_ULL) result in
compiler warnings (-Wshift-count-negative or -Wshift-count-overflow). So
when I wrote the GENMASK_INPUT_CHECK macro, the intention was to catch
cases where l and h were swapped and let the existing compiler warnings
catch negative or too large values.

> 1) h or l negative;

Any of these cases will trigger a compiler warning (h negative triggers
Wshift-count-overflow, l negative triggers Wshift-count-negative).

> 2) h == 0, if l == 0, I dunno what is this. it's basically either 0 or warning;

h == l == 0 is a complicated way of saying 1 (or BIT(0)). l negative
triggers compiler warning.

> 3) l == 0;

if h is negative, compiler warning (see 1). If h == 0, see 2. If h is
positive, there is no error in GENMASK_INPUT_CHECK.

> 4) h and l > 0.

The comparisson works as intended.

If we cast to int, we don't need to worry about the signedness. If
someone enters a value that can't be cast to int, there will still
be a compiler warning about shift out of range.
