Clearing the bitmap is okay with me, since if you grow it again it
should not magically re-gain it's old values.

Said that I think that also virBitmapNext*Bit functions should be fixed
anyways.

I must say that I'm not a fan of the semantics of this API. The
expansion function makes sure that bit position 'b' is included in the
bitmap, while this makes sure that it's excluded.

Removing the memory allocation beyond the last bit should remove the
need to do this, since growing it back would then call the clearing
function and also remove potentially lingering memory.

If you don't have any strong opinion against shrinking the storage array
itself I'd prefer that solution.
