BITMAP_REMAP(9) Basic Kernel Library Functions BITMAP_REMAP(9)NAMEbitmap_remap - Apply map defined by a pair of bitmaps to another bitmap
void bitmap_remap(unsigned long * dst, const unsigned long * src,
const unsigned long * old, const unsigned long * new,
subset to be remapped
defines domain of map
defines range of map
number of bits in each of these bitmaps
Let old and new define a mapping of bit positions, such that whatever
position is held by the n-th set bit in old is mapped to the n-th set
bit in new. In the more general case, allowing for the possibility that
the weight 'w' of new is less than the weight of old, map the position
of the n-th set bit in old to the position of the m-th set bit in new,
where m == n % w.
If either of the old and new bitmaps are empty, or if src and dst point
to the same location, then this routine copies src to dst.
The positions of unset bits in old are mapped to themselves (the
Apply the above specified mapping to src, placing the result in dst,
clearing any bits previously set in dst.
For example, lets say that old has bits 4 through 7 set, and new has
bits 12 through 15 set. This defines the mapping of bit position 4 to
12, 5 to 13, 6 to 14 and 7 to 15, and of all other bit positions
unchanged. So if say src comes into this routine with bits 1, 5 and 7
set, then dst should leave with bits 1, 13 and 15 set.
