x86, hweight: Use a 32-bit popcnt for __arch_hweight32()
Use a 32-bit popcnt instruction for __arch_hweight32(), even on x86-64. Even though the input register will *usually* be zero-extended due to the standard operation of the hardware, it isn't necessarily so if the input value was the result of truncating a 64-bit operation. Note: the POPCNT32 variant used on x86-64 has a technically unnecessary REX prefix to make it five bytes long, the same as a CALL instruction, therefore avoiding an unnecessary NOP.
