> - *Count Leading Zeros*
template <typename T>
inline int count_leading_zeros(T value)
return __builtin_clzll(value) - (64 - (sizeof(T) << 3));
return __builtin_clz(value) - (32 - (sizeof(T) << 3));
__builtin_clz comes in different versions for unsigned int, unsigned long
and unsigned long long. i think the safest way to make use of the correct
version is by using template specialization ... maybe similar to  ... i
am also not sure, how it will behave for signed types ...
but it is great to see an ilog2 implementation ...
