Yes, I imagine you are using a sparse version of v0.5.0 or
earlier right?

This was fixed by commit b3e9d87c6 ("sparse: make bits_to_bytes
round up instead of down", 16-07-2014), which describes to
v0.5.0-17-gb3e9d87, which has not been included in a released
version yet. (if you don't mind building from source, you could
build the master branch using a clone the git repository at
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/devel/sparse/sparse.git).

I'm afraid that I don't know when the next release is due.

HTH
