Presumably gcc does this because the first member
of struct ieee802154_hdr is another struct.

I wonder if "struct foo bar = { 0 };" should be
discouraged by checkpatch.

Right now it's about 4:3 in favor of
struct foo bar = {};
over
struct foo bar = { 0 };

$ git grep -E "struct\s+\w+\s+\w+\s*=\s*\{\s*0\s*\}\s*[,;]" | wc -l
826
$ git grep -E "struct\s+\w+\s+\w+\s*=\s*\{\s*\}\s*[,;]" | wc -l
990

There are many instances on multiple lines too.
The git grep above doesn't span multiple lines.
