    count-leading-zeros: new module · 0da76a94
    Eric Blake authored
    I needed gcc's clz to determine the most significant bit of a
    number (useful for things like truncating to a power of 2),
    and was surprised it is not a standardized function (the
    opposite direction of finding the least significant bit is
    given by ffs).  This borrows heavily from the design of the
    count-one-bits module.
