Yes it's unnecessary here - habits die hard. This would ensure that the
layout is the same for 32 bit and 64 bit. But it's irrelevant here as
(a) we don't support 32 bit, and (b) flags has 64 bit alignment anyway.
I'll drop the union (and 'padding').

I'm not sure what you mean here. What would the reserved fields be
unioned with? And surely they are no longer reserved in that case?

KVM ioctls seem to (sometimes) have some reserved space at the end of
the structure for expansion without the ioctl number changing (since the
structure size is encoded into the ioctl).
