    It sure is.

    There was a suggestion from the systemd folks to bump the kernel
    protocol major version to 6 and add a packed structure for use with that
    version and beyond. That's a bit ugly too but won't break things that
    already work around it in user space for major version 5 and avoids.

    I've not got around to checking if the patch works correctly and
    finishing it.
