Well, that all depends on what input range is needed.
E.g. for 0 the documentation does not match the behaviour
for the original function (returns 0 which is not even a
power of 2).
In the worst case, you'd have to do
return x > 1 ? 2 << av_log(x - 1) : x;
I think, which has a small but still existing chance of
being faster.
