SubjectNew sparse warnings from sched.h

sched/deadline: Use C bitfields for the state flags

Ask the compiler to use a single bit for storing true / false values,
instead of wasting the size of a whole int value.
Tested with gcc 5.4.0 on x86_64, and the compiler produces the expected
Assembly (similar to the Assembly code generated when explicitly accessing
the bits with bitmasks, "&" and "|").

produces four warnings from sparse for every file which includes sched.h:

./include/linux/sched.h:476:62: error: dubious one-bit signed bitfield
./include/linux/sched.h:477:62: error: dubious one-bit signed bitfield
./include/linux/sched.h:478:62: error: dubious one-bit signed bitfield
./include/linux/sched.h:479:62: error: dubious one-bit signed bitfield

This seems like the trivial fix (untested):
