I would add 'potentially' somewhere in that description: it is architecture
dependent whether there are holes in this structure as 'enum' types
and 'long' are both dependent on the ABI, and even if there is a hole,
it is undefined behavior whether the hold gets initialized.

Other than that, the patch looks good.
