ARM lsb/msb assembly

Implement lsb/msb using armv7 assembly instructions.
msb is the easiest one, using a gcc intrinsic that generates
code using the ARM's clz instruction. lsb is also using this
clz instruction, but with the help of ARM's 'rbit' (bit
reversing) instruction. This leads to a >2% speed gain.

I also renamed 'arm-32' to the more meaningfull 'armv7' in the Makefile

No functional change.
