documentation: kernel-api: add more info on bitmap functions

There are some good comments about bitmap operations in lib/bitmap.c
and include/linux/bitmap.h, so format them for document generation and
pull them into core-api/kernel-api.rst.

I converted the "tables" of functions from using tabs to using spaces
so that they are more readable in the source file and in the generated
output.

/**
* DOC: bitmap overview
*
* The available bitmap operations and their rough meaning in the
* case that the bitmap is a single unsigned long are thus:
*
* Note that nbits should be always a compile time evaluable constant.
* Otherwise many inlines will generate horrible code.
*
* bitmap_zero(dst, nbits) *dst = 0UL
* bitmap_fill(dst, nbits) *dst = ~0UL
* bitmap_copy(dst, src, nbits) *dst = *src
* bitmap_and(dst, src1, src2, nbits) *dst = *src1 & *src2
* bitmap_or(dst, src1, src2, nbits) *dst = *src1 | *src2
* bitmap_xor(dst, src1, src2, nbits) *dst = *src1 ^ *src2
* bitmap_andnot(dst, src1, src2, nbits) *dst = *src1 & ~(*src2)
* bitmap_complement(dst, src, nbits) *dst = ~(*src)
* bitmap_equal(src1, src2, nbits) Are *src1 and *src2 equal?
* bitmap_intersects(src1, src2, nbits) Do *src1 and *src2 overlap?
* bitmap_subset(src1, src2, nbits) Is *src1 a subset of *src2?
* bitmap_empty(src, nbits) Are all bits zero in *src?
* bitmap_full(src, nbits) Are all bits set in *src?
* bitmap_weight(src, nbits) Hamming Weight: number set bits
* bitmap_set(dst, pos, nbits) Set specified bit area
* bitmap_clear(dst, pos, nbits) Clear specified bit area
* bitmap_find_next_zero_area(buf, len, pos, n, mask) Find bit free area
