Subject: [RFC PATCH] rcu: Change use of __this_cpu ops on a bool type

__this_cpu_{read/write}() uses sizeof() to determine the size of the variable.
Using this operation on a bool type causes sparse to complain.

I checked the generated code and there is only a slight difference in
instructions generated.

I am not sure this warning by sparse is really valid, but let us silence it
anyways.
