Gentoo ships 5.4.0 which doesn't inline this code on x86_64 defconfig

ffffffff813556c0 <find_next_bit>:
ffffffff813556c0:       55                      push   rbp
ffffffff813556c1:       48 89 d1                mov    rcx,rdx
ffffffff813556c4:       45 31 c0                xor    r8d,r8d
ffffffff813556c7:       48 89 f2                mov    rdx,rsi
ffffffff813556ca:       31 f6                   xor    esi,esi
ffffffff813556cc:       48 89 e5                mov    rbp,rsp
ffffffff813556cf:       e8 7c ff ff ff          call
ffffffff81355650 <_find_next_bit>
ffffffff813556d4:       5d                      pop    rbp
ffffffff813556d5:       c3                      ret

Making "and" operation to be centerpiece of this code is kind of meh
find_next_or_bit() will be hard to implement.
