There's a 32 bit hole just after type. It's best to
give it a name, this way compiler is forced to initialize
it with rest of the structure.

Michael, will you be sending this directly to Linus or would you like
me to apply it to net or net-next?

Thanks.

I'd prefer you to apply it for net and cc stable if possible.
Thanks!

Ok, applied, and added to my -stable submission queue.

Hold on, this patch changes the layout for i386 (where there is
no padding at all).  And it's part of UAPI.

Ouch.  True - and in particular the 32 bit ABI on 64 bit kernels doesn't
work at all. Hmm. It's relatively new and maybe there aren't any 32 bit
users yet. Thoughts?

If it's been in a released kernel version, we really aren't at liberty
to play "maybe nobody uses this" UAPI changing games.

Please send me a revert.

Just naming the padding field isn't sufficient anyway, there also needs to
be code in vhost_new_msg() to initialise it using the name.
