pointer to bitmap
ordinal bit position (n-th set bit, n >= 0)
number of valid bit positions in buf
Map the ordinal offset of bit ord in buf to its position in buf. Value
of ord should be in range 0 <= ord < weight(buf), else results are
If for example, just bits 4 through 7 are set in buf, then ord values 0
through 3 will get mapped to 4 through 7, respectively, and all other
ord values return undefined values. When ord value 3 gets mapped to
(returns) pos value 7 in this example, that means that the 3rd set bit
(starting with 0th) is at position 7 in buf.
The bit positions 0 through bits are valid positions in buf.
