Applied.  But I really dislike this scheme used by the compat code.
Half-way initializing a structure and then depending upon the logic in
the rest of the function to make sure the rest of the struct (the
uninitialized part) is never accessed?

Give me a break, programming, auditing, and bug fixing is hard enough
as it is without sloppy code like this.
