[Bug tree-optimization/33535] bitpos_of_field() returns false result base of hard coded multiplication by 8

I don't think the documentation needs to be modified - multiplying the offset
in bytes (=units) by the BITS_PER_UNIT makes perfect sense to get the bitpos of
a certain field.

taken from the gcc internals:
"BITS_PER_UNIT [Macro]- Define this macro to be the number of bits in an
addressable storage unit (byte). If you do not define this macro the default is

In most cases unit=byte=8 but in my case unit=byte=16 and hard coded
multiplication by 8 is wrong.
