bitmap_zero() would be perfect for this situation. I'll submit a version
2 of this patchset with this change for the various drivers herein.

I'm not sure for_each_set_bit() and __set_bit()/__clear_bit() would be
good for this particular situation since I'm working with the entire
register word (8 bits for this specific device) at a time.

Since I know each register word is 8-bits, I can make 8-bit jumps and
skips rather than evaluating each bit individually. Similarly, it seems
more efficient to store the input 8 bits at a time rather than breaking
it up to individual bits.

However, I do see how all these inline bitwise operations could make it
difficult to follow the code, so perhaps I can break it up across more
lines so that the logic of the loop becomes easier to read.
