That's probably not necessary.

I personally have no issue with bool struct members that
are only used on a transitory basis and not used by hardware
or shared between multiple cpus with different hardware
alignment requirements.

Nothing in this struct is saved or shared.

Perhaps the checkpatch message should be expanded to
enumerate when bool use in a struct is acceptable.
