Subject: [PATCH 24/34] mISDN: optimize get_free_devid()

get_free_devid() traverses each bit in device_ids in an open-coded loop.
We can do it faster by using dedicated find_and_set_bit().

It makes the whole function a nice one-liner, and because MAX_DEVICE_ID
is a small constant-time value (63), on 64-bit platforms find_and_set_bit()
call will be optimized to:

	ffs();
	test_and_set_bit().
