With the ffz() function as defined in arch/powerpc/include/asm/bitops.h
GCC will not optimise the code in case of constant parameter.

This patch replaces ffz() by the generic function.

The generic ffz(x) expects to never be called with ~x == 0
as written in the comment in include/asm-generic/bitops/ffz.h
The only user of ffz() within arch/powerpc/ is
platforms/512x/mpc5121_ads_cpld.c, which checks if x is not 0xff

For non constant calls, the generated code is doing the same:

unsigned long testffz(unsigned long x)
{
	return ffz(x);
}
