Well, the simple solution is to have fls() and ffs() take unsigned int
arguments rather than ints - but the question that brings up is: why
do both of these take signed ints? It seems at least to me that it
would be more sensible for these to take unsigned int, or even
unsigned long like the other bitops do.
