From
Subject[PATCH] lib: hint GCC to inlilne _find_next_bit() helper
Date
Hi all,

It seems that inlining the _find_next_bit() helper makes
find_next_bit() and find_next_zero_bit() 2 times faster at
the scenario of finding all set/cleared bits of randomly
initialised bitmap.

For another typical scenario of traversing sparse bitmap
there is also measurable improvement observed, about 15%.

The increasing of text size of find_bit.o module is 40 bytes
for arm64 - from 252 to 292 bytes - is looking acceptable.

This patch also contains test module.

Measured on ThunderX machine. Tests for other architectures are
very appreciated.
