Let's just always have these 2 fields in the structure, no need for a
#ifdef at all, right? There is no real "savings" from removing them (8
bytes for a structure that is maybe created 2-4 times per machine?)

That way it would keep any of this mess of if the SUPPORT_SYSRQ is
enabled or not to keep everything in sync.
