To make things much easier, restrict clump_size to the one
from the following set:

1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 even on 64-bit platforms.

If it would be simpler solution to add 64 here (implying 32-bit platform),
I would vote for that.

For the generic case we might need something like:

unsigned long bitmap_get_bits(unsigned long *src, unsigned int start, unsigned int nbits)
assert(nbits > BITS_PER_LONG);

/* Something like Rasmus proposed earlier */

And similar to setter.

With Best Regards,
Andy Shevchenko
