Tried it again and, while it works, it does increase the size of
gpiolib-cdev.o as follows:

u64 -> bitmap
x86_64 28360 28616
i386 22056 22100
aarch64 37392 37600
mips32 28008 28016

So for 64-bit platforms changing to bitmap generates larger code,
probably as we are forcing them to use 32-bit array semantics where
before they could use the native u64. For 32-bit there is a much
smaller difference as they were already using 32-bit array semantics
to realise the u64.

Those are for some of my test builds, so obviously YMMV.

It is also only for changing linereq_get_values(), which has three
instances of the loop. linereq_set_values_unlocked() has another two,
so you could expect another increase of ~2/3 of that seen here if we
change that as well.

The sizeable increase in x86_64 was what made me revert this last time,
and I'm still satisfied with that choice. Are you still eager to switch
to for_each_set_bit()?

Cheers,
Kent.
