      lib: optimize cpumask_next_and() · 0ade34c3
      Clement Courbet authored
      We've measured that we spend ~0.6% of sys cpu time in cpumask_next_and().
      It's essentially a joined iteration in search for a non-zero bit, which is
      currently implemented as a lookup join (find a nonzero bit on the lhs,
      lookup the rhs to see if it's set there).
      
      Implement a direct join (find a nonzero bit on the incrementally built
      join).  Also add generic bitmap benchmarks in the new `test_find_bit`
      module for new function (see `find_next_and_bit` in [2] and [3] below).
      
      For cpumask_next_and, direct benchmarking shows that it's 1.17x to 14x
      faster with a geometric mean of 2.1 on 32 CPUs [1].  No impact on memory
      usage.  Note that on Arm, the new pure-C implementation still outperforms
      the old one that uses a mix of C and asm (`find_next_bit`) [3].
      
      [1] Approximate benchmark code:
      
      ```
        unsigned long src1p[nr_cpumask_longs] = {pattern1};
        unsigned long src2p[nr_cpumask_longs] = {pattern2};
        for (/*a bunch of repetitions*/) {
          for (int n = -1; n <= nr_cpu_ids; ++n) {
            asm volatile("" : "+rm"(src1p)); // prevent any optimization
            asm volatile("" : "+rm"(src2p));
            unsigned long result = cpumask_next_and(n, src1p, src2p);
            asm volatile("" : "+rm"(result));
          }
        }
      ```
      
      Results:
