Why should this return size_t instead of unsigned long?

bitmap_weight copes with a bitmask that isn't a multiple of BITS_PER_LONG
in size already.  So I think this can be done as:

unsigned long memweight(const void *s, size_t n)
{
	const unsigned char *ptr = s;
	unsigned long r = 0;

	while (n > 0 && (unsigned long)ptr % sizeof(long)) {
		r += hweight8(*ptr);
		n--;
		ptr++;
	}

	BUG_ON(n >= INT_MAX / 8)

	return r + bitmap_weight((unsigned long *)ptr, n * 8);
}
