Subject: [PATCH] nfs: reorder nfs4_sequence_regs to remove 8 bytes of
 padding on 64 bits

reorder nfs4_sequence_args to remove 8 bytes of padding on 64 bit
builds. 

The size of this structure drops to 24 bytes from 32 and reduces the
text size of nfs.ko.
On my x86_64 size reports 

		text       data     bss
2.6.32-rc5 	200996	   8512	    432	 209940	  33414	nfs.ko
+patch 		200884	   8512	    432	 209828	  333a4	nfs.ko


Signed-off-by: Richard Kennedy <richard@....demon.co.uk>

----
patch against 2.6.32-rc5
only lightly tested but it seems to work both with   
64 bit client -> 32 bit server & 32 bit client -> 64 bit server.

regards

Richard
