      string: introduce memweight() · 639b9e34
      Akinobu Mita authored
      memweight() is the function that counts the total number of bits set in
      memory area.  Unlike bitmap_weight(), memweight() takes pointer and size
      in bytes to specify a memory area which does not need to be aligned to
      long-word boundary.
