So we could simply replace the loop in nfs_block_bits() with call to
BUG()? :->

OK. Either way, this function can be cleaned up. Apparently the Plan 9
filesystem guys thought it rounds up.

What's your opinion of the following patch, which explicitly states the
intent of nfs_block_bits()? It still needs patch 1 and 2.

[PATCH 3/4] Simplify and rename nfs_block_bits() to rounddown_pow_of_two()

nfs_block_bits() doesn't have a lot to do with bits anymore. It can
also be implemented simpler and clearer with fls().
