sync_file is a user of struct fence, so it should claim one of the bits
already reserved for users. Those reserved bits are meant only for the
owner of the fence, if we did indeed need to share that bit with other
consumers of the sync_file->fence_array then adding it to
fence_flags_bits make sense. I don't see any reason at present why it
should be anything other than a private bit to sync_file atm.

Promoting it later (from private to shared) would also not be an issue.
