I'm unsure what you're correcting here.  These bitfields are inherently 
signed, "int local:1" and "int waiting:1" are signed.  They can have one 
of two values, 0 or -1.  So I don't know what you're saying in your 
changelog.

This patch would only make sense if something is testing `local' or 
`waiting' to be equal to 1.  Is that what you're fixing?  If so, please 
specify it in the changelog with an example.
