If we have a bunch of high-numbered bits allocated and then we resize
the struct sbitmap_queue, when those bits get cleared, we'll update the
hint and then have to re-randomize it repeatedly. Avoid that by checking
that the cleared bit is still a valid hint. No measurable performance
difference in the common case.

Small tweak to patch 6 that occurred to me after I sent the series out.
Feel free to fold it in to patch 6 or apply it separately as you see
