The number of bits, nbits, is calculated in mpi_read_raw_data() as follows:
nbits = nbytes * 8;
Afterwards, the number of leading zero bits of the first byte get
nbits -= count_leading_zeros(buffer);
However, count_leading_zeros() takes an unsigned long and thus,
the u8 gets promoted to an unsigned long.
Thus, the above doesn't subtract the number of leading zeros in the most
significant nonzero input byte from nbits, but the number of leading
zeros of the most significant nonzero input byte promoted to unsigned long,
i.e. BITS_PER_LONG - 8 too many.
Fix this by subtracting
count_leading_zeros(...) - (BITS_PER_LONG - 8)
from nbits only.
