I assume there is no need to keep the same size with 5.11-rc, so
could change the struct to:

struct map_benchmark {
	__u64 avg_map_100ns; /* average map latency in 100ns */
	__u64 map_stddev; /* standard deviation of map latency */
	__u64 avg_unmap_100ns; /* as above */
	__u64 unmap_stddev;
	__u32 threads; /* how many threads will do map/unmap in parallel */
	__u32 seconds; /* how long the test will last */
	__s32 node; /* which numa node this benchmark will run on */
	__u32 dma_bits; /* DMA addressing capability */
	__u32 dma_dir; /* DMA data direction */
	__u8 expansion[84]; /* For future use */
};

This won't increase size on 64bit system, but it increases 4bytes
on 32bits system comparing to 5.11-rc. How do you think about it?

Thanks
Barry
