[Xen-devel] [PATCH] xen/include: public: Document the padding in struct xen_hvm_param

From: Julien Grall <jgrall@xxxxxxxxxx>

There is an implicit padding of 2 bytes in struct xen_hvm_param between
the field domid and index. Make it explicit by introduce a padding
field. This can also serve as documentation.

Note that I don't think we can mandate it to be zero because a guest may
not have initialized the padding.
