What's the point of keeping the bitfields? If it has no relation to
hardware, convert it to bytes. If it has, rename it to e.g. flags and
provide nice inline functions to access the relevant bits.

But this looks messy, because there is always a point in time where the
layout of the struct does not match actual memory conents. :(
