Re: [PATCH 1/2] cifs: remove unused status severity defines




All of those uses of __constant_cpu_to_le32 apparently (at least
according to checkpatch) should be changed (someday) to cpu_to_le32
but I didn't research why the change from __constant_cpu_to_le32
--->   cpu_to_le32

If it has benefit - and checkpatch is right (it warned about
__constant_cpu_to_le32 being no longer preferred) ... perhaps would be
worth a followup patch to clean the rest of them up?   If you have any
context on why kernel code has moved away from using the older format
of __constant_cpu_to_.... would be useful to know if any benefit to
the change
