SubjectRe: [PATCH 07/14] cxl/mem: Add send command
> +/**

I think (and this would help if you ran `pahole` on this structure) has
some gaps in it:

> +struct cxl_send_command {
> + __u32 id;
> + __u32 flags;
> + __u32 rsvd;
> + __u32 retval;
> +
> + struct {
> + __s32 size_in;

Here..Maybe just add:

__u32 rsv_2;
> + __u64 in_payload;
> + };
> +
> + struct {
> + __s32 size_out;

And here. Maybe just add:
__u32 rsv_2;
> + __u64 out_payload;
> + };
> +};

Perhaps to prepare for the future where this may need to be expanded, you
could add a size at the start of the structure, and
maybe what version of structure it is?

Maybe for all the new structs you are adding?
