Ah, I see the bug. I was looking at ffz (which is correct),
not ffs (which isn't).

The problem is ^^^

That sez any of register, memory, or immediate is ok.
It should be "r" instead, just like in ffz.

That said, we should probably be using __builtin_ffs
instead. The compiler knows how to do bsfl plus the
adjustment. Plus, it knows how to evaluate it at
compile-time for constants.
