I stumbled upon the same issue.  Apparently the latest version
of Frama-C is not able to prove that a nonzero unsigned quantity
shifted to the right by a nonzero number of positions results
in a strict decrease.  Replacing shift by integer division does
not help.  Can someone on this list explain what is going on?
Is there a workaround for this problem?
Kind regards,
