SubjectProblem with find_first_bit function and kin
It's well may be that I'm just missing something obvious.

It seems to me that find_first_bit/find_next_bit functions return their
offsets "base 1" - first set bit is "1" and last is "bitmap size". This
means that if only the last bit in the bitmap is set, the returned value
will be indistinguishable from no bits set situation. Moreover, bit
manipulation functions appear to use "base 0" bit addresses, adding to the
inconvenience.

Is this a desired behavior? And, if yes, how is one supposed to deal with last bit of the bitmap?
