seq_file: add seq_cpumask(), seq_nodemask()
Short enough reads from /proc/irq/*/smp_affinity return -EINVAL for no good reason. This became noticed with NR_CPUS=4096 patches, when length of printed representation of cpumask becase 1152, but cat(1) continued to read with 1024-byte chunks. bitmap_scnprintf() in good faith fills buffer, returns 1023, check returns -EINVAL. Fix it by switching to seq_file, so handler will just fill buffer and doesn't care about offsets, length, filling EOF and all this crap. For that add seq_bitmap(), and wrappers around it -- seq_cpumask() and seq_nodemask().
