log2.h: Define order_base_2() macro for convenience.
Robert P. J. Day [Wed, 6 Feb 2008 09:36:54 +0000 (01:36 -0800)]
Given a number of places in the tree that need to calculate this value
explicitly, might as well just create a macro for it.

(akpm: must be implemented as a macro for callee typeof() usage)
