Er... this is enlarging a structure in the userspace ABI, right?  Which
will break userspace that latched on to the structure definition in the
previous patch, and therefore isn't expecting a function name here.

If you're gonna put a character string(?) at the end then I guess you
have to pre-pad the notification structure so that we can add things
later, or.... bump the type code every time you add a field?

(Maybe I misread that?  But this is include/uapi/...)
