Barry,

It looks like my comments for previous iteration were ignored. I don't
like the approach where you allocate potentially big amount of kernel
memory just to free it almost immediately. Nor in lib/bitmap, neither
in lib/cpumask.

For next iterations, please move this function back to lib/bitmap
because there's no specific here for cpumasks.

Thaks,
Yury
