bitmap_ord_to_pos - find position of n-th set bit in bitmap
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
int bitmap_ord_to_pos(const unsigned long * buf , int ord , int bits );
3. ARGUMENTS ▲
pointer to bitmap
ordinal bit position (n-th set bit, n >= 0)
number of valid bit positions in buf
4. DESCRIPTION ▲
Map the ordinal offset of bit ord in buf to its position in buf. Value of ord should be in range 0 <= ord < weight(buf), else results are undefined.
If for example, just bits 4 through 7 are set in buf, then ord values 0 through 3 will get mapped to 4 through 7, respectively, and all other ord values return undefined values. When ord value 3 gets mapped to (returns) pos value 7 in this example, that means that the 3rd set bit (starting with 0th) is at position 7 in buf.
The bit positions 0 through bits are valid positions in buf.
