Declares a struct that implements BitRange,

This macro will generate a tuple struct (or "newtype") that implements the BitRange trait and by extension the Bit trait.

The syntax is more or less the same as declaring a "newtype", including the attributes, documentation comments and pub keyword.

The difference with a normal "newtype" is the type in parentheses. If the type is [t] (where t is any of the unsigned integer type), the "newtype" will be generic and implement BitRange for T: AsMut<[t]> + AsRef<[t]> (for example a slice, an array or a Vec). You can also use MSB0 [t]. The difference will be the positions of the bit. You can use the bits_positions example to see where each bits is. If the type is neither of this two, the "newtype" will wrap a value of the specified type and implements BitRange the same ways as the wrapped type.
