BIT(), GENMASK(), etc. are useful to define register bits of hardware.
However, low-level code is often written in assembly, where they are
not available due to the hard-coded 1UL, 0UL.

In fact, in-kernel headers such as arch/arm64/include/asm/sysreg.h
use _BITUL() instead of BIT() so that the register bit macros are
available in assembly.

Using macros in include/uapi/linux/const.h have two reasons:

[1] For use in uapi headers
  We should use underscore-prefixed variants for user-space.

[2] For use in assembly code
  Since _BITUL() uses UL(1) instead of 1UL, it can be used as an
  alternative of BIT().

For [2], it is pretty easy to change BIT() etc. for use in assembly.

This allows to replace _BUTUL() in kernel-space headers with BIT().
