bool xxx:1 is fine with me - I think it's worth keeping the semantics
of these being boolean flags as obvious as possible.

I just wouldn't invest much effort in similar patches in the future
(given that there are only likely to be, what, <20 instances of
cgroup_subsys in the kernel?). Shrinking a structure that had
potentially very many instances, such as css_set or cg_cgroup_link,
would be different of course.
