One other note:  I find the bit numbering in find_last_set_bit peculiar:  isn't the least significant bit usually bit 0?  (Well, okay some people number the msb 0, but that's just weird. :)  I know the ffs and fls functions also start their bit numbering at one, but this seems very unconventional to me.

Perhaps rename find_last_set_bit to bit_length?  i.e., it's the *size* of the small bitfield that can contain the given value, rather than the index of the highest bit in that bitfield.
