IMHO, using (1 << 10) makes the code harder to debug.  If you see a field
in a structure like 0x8354, it is non-trivial to map this to the ST_*
flags if they are declared in the form (1 << 10) or BIT(10).  If they are
declared in the form 0x100 (as they are now) then it is trivial that the
ST_APPEND flag is set in 0x8354, and easy to understand the other flags.

So, my preference would be to NOT land this or the previous patch.

Cheers, Andreas
