pkt_sched: sch_qfq: improve efficiency of make_eligible
In make_eligible, a mask is used to decide which groups must become eligible: the i-th group becomes eligible only if the i-th bit of the mask (from the right) is set. The mask is computed by left-shifting a 1 by a given number of places, and decrementing the result. The shift is performed on a ULL to avoid problems in case the number of places to shift is higher than 31. On a 32-bit machine, this is more costly than working on an UL. This patch replaces such a costly operation with two cheaper branches. The trick is based on the following fact: in case of a shift of at least 32 places, the resulting mask has at least the 32 less significant bits set, whereas the total number of groups is lower than 32. As a consequence, in this case it is enough to just set the 32 less significant bits of the mask with a cheaper ~0UL. In the other case, the shift can be safely performed on a UL.
