Commit 2fc016c5bd8a ("linux/const.h: Add _BITUL() and _BITULL()")
introduced _BITUL() and _BITULL().  Its git-log says the difference
from the already existing BIT() are:

  1. The namespace is such that they can be used in uapi definitions.
  2. The type is set with the _AC() macro to allow it to be used in
  3. The type is explicitly specified to be UL or ULL.

However, I found _BITUL() is often used for "2. use in assembly",
while "1. use in uapi" is unneeded.  If we address only "2.", we can
improve the existing BIT() for that.  It will allow us to replace
many _BITUL() instances with BIT(), i.e. avoid needless use of
underscore-prefixed macros, in the end, for better de-couple of
userspace/kernel headers.
