Add bms_prev_member function

Enterprise / PostgreSQL - Alvaro Herrera [alvh.no-ip.org] - 7 April 2018 20:54 EDT

This works very much like the existing bms_last_member function, only it traverses through the Bitmapset in the opposite direction from the most significant bit down to the least significant bit. A special prevbit value of-1 may be used to have the function determine the most significant bit. This is useful for starting a loop. When there are no members less than prevbit, the function returns -2 to indicate there are no more members.
