'netdev_feature_helpers.h' fits more I guess, doesn't it? It
contains several helpers, not only one.
And BTW, do you think it's worth to create a new file rather than
put everything just in netdev_features.h?

netdev_features_t sometimes is being placed and used on the stack.
I think it's better to pass just `netdev_features_t *` to those
helpers, this way you wouldn't also need to create a new helper
for each net_device::*_features.

A small proposal: if you look at bitmap_and() for example, it
returns 1 if the resulting bitmap is non-empty and 0 if it is. What
about doing the same here? It would probably help to do reduce
boilerplating in the drivers where we only want to know if there's
anything left after masking.
Same for xor, toggle etc.

Nit: kernel is C11 now, you can do just `for (u32 i = 0; i ...`.
(and yeah, it's better to use unsigned types when you don't plan
to store negative values there).
