The gain is stopping a warning that clutters the output log of clang.
To improve readability, one can drop the ifdef-structure and just keep
the right shift version, like Nicholas suggested. This will have a (very
small)
impact on performance in CONFIG_SCHED_DEBUG case, but when
debugging, performance is no problem anyways.

There are 2 ways to disable the warning. Either disable it for this
particular
occurrence, which clutters the code with #pragma's. THIS is really ugly.
Or disable it globally and maybe miss some important/helpful warnings.

No, because clang only warns if the constant is neither 1 nor 0.
(These being the 'best' integer representations of booleans)
