Fix userspace, and ime letting userspace get away with improper uapi usage
is a path full of regrets. That's why I'm advising that we check any
unused field for 0, and any unused bits also. Plus anything else that
userspace could get wrong. Because if it's not checked, someone will get
it wrong, and then we have to keep it working forever.
