I may have gone to in-depth with the ABI stuff.  But ultimately, I
think, if were are going to do this, we should do it across all the
structures that have reserved space, and keep them consistent.  Not just
the ones that we're having issues with now.

I'd like to think, that ideally, we can foresee these issues before they
crop up, and are able to pad them accordingly, however, the PrplInfo
struct has already shown that you can't predict everything.
