The sbitmap code that has just been turned into a library module
returns uninitialized data for sbitmap_weight(), as pointed out by
gcc when building with -Wmaybe-uninitialized:

lib/sbitmap.c: In function 'sbitmap_weight':
lib/sbitmap.c:179:9: error: 'weight' may be used uninitialized in this function 

Note that the value is never initialized, we just add data on
top, so it is wrong regardless of sb->map_nr.

This adds the missing initialization.
