In the next few patches, we will depend upon there being no
uninitialised bits inside the ggtt_view. To ensure this we add the

expanded the struct to include some padding bytes.

Isn't packed theoretically needed on the intel_rotation_plane_info
name in the previous patch as well? Otherwise there could be a hole
between the array elements if the structure got changed in the

Possibly, not too sure on the inner details of __packed. The assert
below will catch accidental holes in future (and if they change the

Somehow I only saw the assert for partial info.
