Scratch that -- as Tycho just mentioned, there is un-named padding in
the struct so check_zeroed_user() is the wrong thing to do. But this
also will make extensions harder to deal with because (presumably) they
will also have un-named padding, making copy_struct_from_user() the
wrong thing to do as well.

So while there's not much to be done to fix the current struct layout, I
humbly suggest that any future struct extensions should not have any
un-named padding (so that at the very least you could use
copy_struct_from_user() in some form).
