Yes, that was another motivation - it should help silence a lot of false
alarms about reading uninitialized padding values when writing to clients,
at the cost of silencing a few true alarms about reading uninitialized data
values from those structures - making it a bit harder to find bugs like
the recently reported https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=51375 .
