The problem is that you then can't start with bit 0 unless you pass a
-1 which seems unsane.

You hit this actually too in your code with

for_each_set_bit_cont(j, c->idxmsk, X86_PMC_IDX_MAX)
...

Your intention was to start with X86_PMC_IDX_MAX, the first fixed
counter. But you always started with X86_PMC_IDX_MAX+1 never getting
the first fixed counter.

With list_*_continue it is slightly different because there is the
list header that *points* to the first element. Thus it can start with
the fist element of the list too by passing the list header.

In the end, passing the first bit to start with seems more logically.
