[docs] [issue12880] ctypes: clearly document how structure bit fields are allocated

New submission from Meador Inge <meadori at gmail.com>:

As issues like issue6069 and issue11920 allude to, figuring out how 'ctypes' allocates bit-fields is not very clear.  The documentation should be enhanced to flesh this out in more detail.  As an example, Microsoft documents the VC++ implementation in a reasonably clear manner ( http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ewwyfdbe(v=vs.71).aspx ).
