Umm, actually, I don't think that's true.

Even if there were a setbit() that worked in <asm/bitops.h>, lde has no
business using it.  Application programs shouldn't be using kernel headers
like that.

Lde really needs to provide its own version of any of these functions that
it needs, or find some library that supplies them.
