Large number of boilerplate bit operations written in C-language
are scattered around include/asm-*/bitops.h.
These patch series gather them into include/asm-generic/bitops.h. And

- kill duplicated code and comment (about 4000lines)
- use better C-language equivalents
- help porting new architecture (now include/asm-generic/bitops.h is not
  referenced from anywhere)
