each of the unions above plays the role of in/out argument to its
corresponding ioctl call.

'in' part is used when ioctl() is called by client (userland
application) - data is written by app.

'out' part is read by app on exit from ioctl(), but only when ioctl()
retuns 0.

do You suggest adding the comment to gna.h for the above?
