Not really the point; he wants to guarantee he only returns >0 when
there's a single bit set. But the thing is, cleared_* is a bitfield, and
I'm afraid that the above will result in some terrible code-gen.

Maybe something like:

if (tlb->cleared_ptes && !(tlb->cleared_pmds ||
tlb->cleared_puds ||
tlb->cleared_p4ds))
return 3;

if (tlb->cleared_pmds && !(tlb->cleared_ptes ||
tlb->cleared_puds ||
tlb->cleared_p4ds))
return 2;

if (tlb->cleared_puds && !(tlb->cleared_ptes ||
tlb->cleared_pmds ||
tlb->cleared_p4ds))
return 1;

return 0;

Which I admit is far too much typing, but I suspect it generates far
saner code (just a few masks and branches).

But maybe the compiler surprises us, what do I konw.
