The idea makes sense, but I couldn't find any such use. I was thinking
that any use like that would be accompanied by an #ifdef
COUNT_LEADING_ZEROS_0, but I found no matches when greping through the
sources. I could be missing something, of course.
Or maybe it should be used at some places, but currently isn't.
I assume the hardwired values were there because these expanded to fully
We might define these directly, at least for arm64, to CLZ and RBIT+CLZ,
respectively, instead of using gcc's builtin semi-defined variants?
