APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The problem is exposed when an expression is used to specified
    an unnamed bitfield width rather than integer literal. In
    addition to that, the type of expression needs to be different
    from the bitfield type.
    
    The following message might be incorrectly issued even though
    the type of bitfield is not long:
    
    1540-1639 (I) The behavior of long type bit fields has changed
    from previous releases of this compiler.  In 64-bit mode, long
    type bit fields now default to long, not int.
    

Local fix

  • Replace expression with integer literal
