I was thinking the "len" portion was for determining if the API ever
changes in the future. My point was that given the padding holes, e.g.
adding a u8 after signaled, "len" wouldn't change, so the kernel might
expect to starting reading something after signaled that it wasn't
checking before, but the len would be the same.

Well that would certainly change the exposure of the interface pretty
drastically. :)

So, let's talk more about this, as it raises another thought I had
too: for the PTRACE interface to work, you have to know specifically
which filter you want to get notifications for. Won't that be slightly
tricky?

I'm not opposed to keeping it, but if you don't think anyone will use
it ... we should probably drop it just to avoid the complexity. It's a
cool API, though, so I'd like to hear from others first before you go
tearing it out. ;) (stgraber added to CC)

Yeah, it's a pretty annoying C-ism. The spec says that struct
_members_ will get zero-initialized, but it doesn't say anything about
padding. >_< In most cases, the padding gets initialized too, just
because of bit widths being small enough that they're caught in the
member initialization that the compiler does. But for REALLY big
holes, they may get missed. In this case, while the padding is small,
it's directly exposed to userspace, so I want to make it robust.

Ah, true. In that case, probably do resp.len = size to avoid any logic
failures due to the double-read? I just want to avoid any chance of
confusing the size and actually using it somewhere.
