For sure it might cause problems for CRIU since we have
similar definitions for this structure inside our code.
That said if kernel is about to modify the structures it
should keep backward compatibility at least if a user
passes previous version of a structure @ssp should be
set to something safe by the kernel itself.

I didn't read the whole series of patches in details
yet, hopefully will be able tomorrow. Thanks Andy for
CC'ing!
