Subject[PATCH] x86: optimize find_first_bit for small bitmaps
[PATCH] x86: optimize find_first_bit for small bitmaps

Avoid a call to find_first_bit if the bitmap size is know at
compile time and small enough to fit in a single long integer.
Modeled after an optimization in the original x86_64-specific
code.
