Yeah, fixed

Hmm. I could probably fix this, but it involves (at least) moving a
struct definition and adding several new includes, and I'm not sure
it'll actually converge to something working.

The former is a macro because I doubt that BUILD_BUG_ON is valid in
that context in a function. The latter is a macro because 'field' is
a name, not a value.
