[PATCH] linux/bitmap.h: (buildbot-only) check if we have any compile-time zero-size bitmaps

From: Rasmus Villemoes
Date: Wed Aug 15 2018 - 04:56:35 EST

Most of the inline bitmap functions are buggy if passed a compile-time
constant nbits==0. The convention is that the caller only guarantees
BITS_TO_LONGS(nbits) words can be accessed, which for nbits==0 is of
course 0. However, all the small_const_nbits() cases proceed to
dereferencing the passed src or dst pointers unconditionally.

Of course, nobody passes a literal 0 as nbits, but it could come about
from some odd CONFIG_ combination, or because the compiler is smart
enough to reduce some expression to 0, or... In any case, this patch is
just for the build-bots to chew on for various .config and arches to see
if we have any.

Since most (if not all, I'll check) of the out-of-line implementations
handle nbits==0 correctly, I'll probably just unconditionally add the
nbits>0 clause to small_const_nbits() to force the ool versions to be
used if any compile-time zero-size bitmap should turn up.
