Ok, that's truly a funky warning.

But since I don't deal well with warnings, particularly during the
merge window, I just fixed it up in the merge.

The fix is to simply not have a bitfield base type of "unsigned char",
and have it cross a char boundary. Instead the base type should just
be "unsigned int".

Of course, I couldn't test my change, but it shuts the compiler up,
and it very much looks like the right thing.
