Subject[2.6 patch] KVM: fix userspace ABI breakage
The following part of commit 9ef621d3be56e1188300476a8102ff54f7b6793f 
(KVM: Support mixed endian machines) changed on the size of a struct
that is exported to userspace:

include/linux/kvm.h:

@@ -318,14 +318,14 @@ struct kvm_trace_rec {
__u32 vcpu_id;
union {
struct {
- __u32 cycle_lo, cycle_hi;
+ __u64 cycle_u64;
__u32 extra_u32[KVM_TRC_EXTRA_MAX];
} cycle;
struct {
__u32 extra_u32[KVM_TRC_EXTRA_MAX];
} nocycle;
} u;
-};
+} __attribute__((packed));


Packing a struct was the correct idea, but it packed the wrong struct.
