That's good, I will modify and resend.

We use this function to find whether the bit of index in the phase_map
is 1. The index can be twice as MAX_PHASE(reach to 63), because we use
a unidirectional search, start search continuous phase to found the
max continuous length from 0, 1, ..., to 31. When we start from
bit31, index 32 should wrap as 0. This function can be replaced by mod
function(idx %= MAX_PHASE + 1).

Yes, thank you for your suggestion, the function name is really not good.
I want use test_phase_bit(u32 phase_map, unsigned int bit), is that ok?
