SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/3] X86: Optimise fls(), ffs() and fls64()

Okay.

Using the attached test program:

warthog>time ./get_order
real 1m37.191s
user 1m36.313s
sys 0m0.861s
warthog>time ./get_order x
real 0m16.892s
user 0m16.586s
sys 0m0.287s
warthog>time ./get_order x x
real 0m7.731s
user 0m7.727s
sys 0m0.002s

Using the current upstream fls64() as a basis for an inlined get_order() [the
second result above] is much faster than using the current out-of-line
loop-based get_order() [the first result above].

Using my optimised inline fls64()-based get_order() [the third result above]
is even faster still.

I ran the above on my Core2 desktop box running x86_64 Fedora 12.

Also note that I compiled the test program with -O3, so I had to do things to
prevent gcc from optimising the call to fls64() or get_order() away, such as
adding up the results and sticking them in a global variable, and not having
too few values passed to get_order(), lest gcc calculate them in advance.

So it would be useful to decide if we can optimise fls() and fls64() for
x86_64. Certainly it would be useful to replace the out-of-line get_order()
for x86_64.
