Subject[PATCH 1/2] device.h: pack struct dev_links_info
Date
The dev_links_info structure has 4 bytes of padding at the end of it
when embedded in struct device (which is the only place it lives). To
help reduce the size of struct device pack this structure so we can take
advantage of the hole with later structure reorganizations.
