Hi David,
thanks for your time.

Yes, we can avoid the SEG6_LOCAL_MAX_SUPP. Using the BITS_PER_TYPE macro seems
better to me and it avoids nailing the value 32 as the limit. At compile time,
the kernel build will fail if the total number of SRv6 attributes will exceed
the number of bits available in the unsigned long bitmap (whatever is the
reference architecture). Therefore, I'm going to follow your suggestion!

I think there is an issue here because BITS_PER_TYPE(unsigned long) is greater
than the SEG6_LOCAL_MAX (currently = 9).

I think it should be like this:

BUILD_BUG_ON(SEG6_LOCAL_MAX + 1 > BITS_PER_TYPE(unsigned long))

I will send a v2 with the changes discussed so far.

Thank you,
Andrea
