[PATCH v7 0/8] Introduce the for_each_set_clump8 macro

Changes in v7:
  - Pass bitmap_set_value8 'value' parameter by value
  - Remove bitmap_set_value8 final mask operation; users beware: values
    greater than 8 bits may clobber bitmap

While adding GPIO get_multiple/set_multiple callback support for various
drivers, I noticed a pattern of looping manifesting that would be useful
standardized as a macro.

This patchset introduces the for_each_set_clump8 macro and utilizes it
in several GPIO drivers. The for_each_set_clump macro8 facilitates a
for-loop syntax that iterates over a memory region entire groups of set
bits at a time.

For example, suppose you would like to iterate over a 32-bit integer 8
bits at a time, skipping over 8-bit groups with no set bit, where
XXXXXXXX represents the current 8-bit group:

    Example:        10111110 00000000 11111111 00110011
    First loop:     10111110 00000000 11111111 XXXXXXXX
    Second loop:    10111110 00000000 XXXXXXXX 00110011
    Third loop:     XXXXXXXX 00000000 11111111 00110011

Each iteration of the loop returns the next 8-bit group that has at
least one set bit.

The for_each_set_clump8 macro has four parameters:

    * start: set to the bit offset of the current clump
    * clump: set to the current clump value
    * bits: bitmap to search within
    * size: bitmap size in number of bits

In this version of the patchset, the for_each_set_clump macro has been
reimplemented and simplified based on the suggestions provided by Rasmus
Villemoes and Andy Shevchenko in the version 4 submission.

In particular, the function of the for_each_set_clump macro has been
restricted to handle only 8-bit clumps; the drivers that use the
for_each_set_clump macro only handle 8-bit ports so a generic
for_each_set_clump implementation is not necessary. Thus, a solution for
odd-sized clumps (e.g. 3-bit, 7-bit, etc.) mismatching word boundaries
can be postponed until a driver appears that actually requires a generic
for_each_set_clump implementation.

In addition, the bitmap_get_value8 and bitmap_set_value8 functions are
introduced to get and set 8-bit values respectively. Their use is based
on the behavior suggested in the patchset version 4 review. Similarly,
the implementation of the find_next_clump function has been simplified
in order for the function to match the syntax and use of the
find_next_bit function.
