The ck_bitmap_size() function returns the number of bytes that are necessary to allocate for a bitmap that will contain the number of bits specified by n_bits.

This function is used to determine how many bytes to allocate for dynamically created bitmap objects. The allocated object must still be initialized using ck_bitmap_init(3).
