Subject[PATCH v4 0/7] lib: rework bitmap_parse
Hi all,

I'm sorry for long delay with re-submission of this series
As Andy mentioned in review for v3, I switched to isxdigit()
where appropriate. I also removed my Marvell's signed-off-by
since I don't work for them anymore.


On top of next-20190904.

Similarly to recently revisited bitmap_parselist() [1],
bitmap_parse() is ineffective and overcomplicated. This
series reworks it, aligns its interface with bitmap_parselist()
and makes usage simpler.

The series also adds a test for the function and fixes usage of it
in cpumask_parse() according to new design - drops the calculating
of length of an input string.

bitmap_parse() takes the array of numbers to be put into the map in
the BE order which is reversed to the natural LE order for bitmaps.
For example, to construct bitmap containing a bit on the position 42,
we have to put a line '400,0'. Current implementation reads chunk
one by one from the beginning ('400' before '0') and makes bitmap
shift after each successful parse. It makes the complexity of the
whole process as O(n^2). We can do it in reverse direction ('0'
before '400') and avoid shifting, but it requires reverse parsing

Tested on arm64 and BE mips.

- strnchrnul() signature and description changed, ifdeffery and
exporting removed;
- test split for better demonstration of before/after changes;
- minor naming and formatting issues fixed.
- fix bitmap_clear() misuse.
- opencode in_str() helper.
- simplify while() in bitmap_parse()
- use isxdigit() where appropriate.
- clean signed-off-by list.

Yury Norov (7):
lib/string: add strnchrnul()
bitops: more BITS_TO_* macros
lib: add test for bitmap_parse()
lib: make bitmap_parse_user a wrapper on bitmap_parse
lib: rework bitmap_parse()
lib: new testcases for bitmap_parse{_user}
cpumask: don't calculate length of the input string
