Fair enough, adding more folks to cc. Does anyone have objections
or comments to the below patch and to merging it through linux-gpio?

It's part of this series:
https://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-gpio/msg25067.html

Looking at the mnemonics of x86 and arm I couldn't find one which
would avoid the jump and be faster/shorter than the inline functions
below, so putting this in include/linux/bitops.h (rather than
arch/*/include/asm/) seemed appropriate. Can anyone imagine
doing the same quicker with inline assembly?

I carried this over from existing functions, see e.g. commit 1a1d48a4a8fd
("linux/bitmap: Force inlining of bitmap weight functions").

Thanks,

Subject: [PATCH 1/4] bitops: Introduce assign_bit()

A common idiom is to assign a value to a bit with:

if (value)
set_bit(nr, addr);
else
clear_bit(nr, addr);

Likewise common is the one-line expression variant:

value ? set_bit(nr, addr) : clear_bit(nr, addr);

Commit 9a8ac3ae682e ("dm mpath: cleanup QUEUE_IF_NO_PATH bit
manipulation by introducing assign_bit()") introduced assign_bit()
to the md subsystem for brevity.

Make it available to others, in particular gpiolib and the upcoming
driver for Maxim MAX3191x industrial serializer chips.
