Subject: [PATCH 3/6] lib/bitmap: make bitmap_parse_user a wrapper on bitmap_parse

Currently we parse user data byte after byte which leads to
overcomplicating of parsing algorithm. There are no performance
critical users of bitmap_parse_user(), and so we can duplicate
user data to kernel buffer and simply call bitmap_parselist().
This rework lets us unify and simplify bitmap_parse() and
bitmap_parse_user(), which is done in the following patch.
