Subject: [PATCH 4.9 14/32] ARC: fix __ffs return value to avoid build warnings

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

Change __ffs return value from 'int' to 'unsigned long' as it
is done in other implementations (like asm-generic, x86, etc...)
to avoid build-time warnings in places where type is strictly
checked.

As __ffs may return values in [0-31] interval changing return
type to unsigned is valid.
