[PATCH] linux/bitmap.h: Improve BITMAP_{LAST,FIRST}_WORD_MASK

From: Rasmus Villemoes
Date: Wed Feb 18 2015 - 17:39:52 EST

The macro BITMAP_LAST_WORD_MASK can be implemented without a
conditional, which will generally lead to slightly better generated
code (221 bytes saved for allmodconfig-GCOV_KERNEL, ~2k with
GCOV_KERNEL). As a small bonus, this also ensures that the nbits
parameter is expanded exactly once.

In BITMAP_FIRST_WORD_MASK, if start is signed gcc is technically
allowed to assume it is positive (or divisible by BITS_PER_LONG), and
hence just do the simple mask. It doesn't seem to use this, and even
on an architecture like x86 where the shift only depends on the lower
5 or 6 bits, and these bits are not affected by the signedness of the
expression, gcc still generates code to compute the C99 mandated value
of start % BITS_PER_LONG. So just use a mask explicitly, also for
consistency with BITMAP_LAST_WORD_MASK.
