    SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 1/9] string: introduce memweight

    Is lib/string.c the right place for this? I get a build error on the
    ia64 sim_defconfig:

    LD arch/ia64/hp/sim/boot/bootloader

    It fails because it pulls in lib/lib.a(string.o) to get some
    innocuous function like strcpy() ... but it also gets
    given memweight() which relies on __bitmap_weight()
    which it doesn't have, because it doesn't include lib/built-in.o
    (which is where bitmap.o, the definer of __bitmap_weight(), has
    been linked).

    Moving memweight() to lib/bitmap.c fixes the problem. But it
    isn't really clear that it belongs there either. Perhaps it should
    be its own file lib/memweight.c that gets included in lib/lib.a?
