This kind of masks the fact that it's the same as
virtio_net_hdr_mrg_rxbuf. So it's forcing people to duplicate
code for transitional devices.

How about
struct virtio_net_modern_hdr {
	struct virtio_net_hdr_mrg_rxbuf hdr;
}


This will also make it look nicer when we start
adding stuff in the header, the main header
is separated in a struct by its own, so it's
easy to apply operations such as sizeof.
