Given 64-bit unsigned integers, count the bits set in each one.


One function:

int setbits(unsigned long long);

Your function may be called up to 10^8 times.


Your code must be less than 560 characters in length. 560 characters is plenty for any sane solution. Otherwise, only half of the points are awarded.

    Is this intentional, or a fundamental flaw in the system?

      The grader has been updated so that the grader's process never actually computes the answer. Similar exploits should no longer be possible.
