    Struct padding is a problem. Really, there shouldn't be any
    implicit padding. This causes:

    1. security leaks when such structs are copied to userspace
    (the implicit padding is uninitialized, and so may contain
    a chunk of somebody's private key or password)

    2. bloat, when struct members could be reordered to eliminate
    the need for padding
