The sbitmap code that has just been turned into a library module

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.

Thanks Arnd, Colin sent the same patch and I applied it. Note that:

Fixes: 88459642cba4 ("blk-mq: abstract tag allocation out into sbitmap library")

that isn't truly correct, that patch is just what moved the code. The bug predates that commit.
