bus: Fix bus_print_property() to use "int" for booleans

This fixes the problem that on big endian architectures, like mips or
powerpc, boolean properties that were retrieved via sd-bus were always
set to 0 (no).

Subject: bus: fix bus_print_property() to use "int" for booleans
We always use "int" if we retrieve boolean values from sd-bus, as "bool"
is only a single byte, but full int on va-args.
Thanks to Werner Fink for the report!
