How to use BH_PrivateStart (struct buffer_head)


I have quetion related to linux kernel.
I think BH_PrivateStart in include/linux/fs.h is defined
for private use for drivers/ file systems. and In fast ext3 used
this value in include/linux/jbd.h

My question is if some one (already ext3 ) used this value to define its own private flags , how can some future driver /file system writers in linux can use this value???

If future driver/file system writers use this value it results in clash !! Am I right???

Please let me know How to use BH_PrivateStart for my own set of private values ???
