Just to confirm my understanding; I've got these as:

struct seccomp_notif {
__u32 len; /* 0 4 */
__u32 pid; /* 4 4 */
__u64 id; /* 8 8 */
__u8 signaled; /* 16 1 */

/* XXX 7 bytes hole, try to pack */

struct seccomp_data data; /* 24 64 */
/* --- cacheline 1 boundary (64 bytes) was 24 bytes ago --- */

/* size: 88, cachelines: 2, members: 5 */
/* sum members: 81, holes: 1, sum holes: 7 */
/* last cacheline: 24 bytes */
};
struct seccomp_notif_resp {
__u32 len; /* 0 4 */
__s32 error; /* 4 4 */
__u64 id; /* 8 8 */
__s64 val; /* 16 8 */

/* size: 24, cachelines: 1, members: 4 */
/* last cacheline: 24 bytes */
};

in the next version. Since the structure has no padding at the end of
it, I think the Right Thing will happen. Note that this is slightly
different than what Kees suggested, if I add signaled after data, then
I end up with:

struct seccomp_notif {
__u32 len; /* 0 4 */
__u32 pid; /* 4 4 */
__u64 id; /* 8 8 */
struct seccomp_data data; /* 16 64 */
/* --- cacheline 1 boundary (64 bytes) was 16 bytes ago --- */
__u8 signaled; /* 80 1 */

/* size: 88, cachelines: 2, members: 5 */
/* padding: 7 */
/* last cacheline: 24 bytes */
};

which I think will have the versioning problem if the next member
introduces is < 7 bytes.
