Yeah, 1 would be fine too.  Maybe better to call it BUFFERDESC_MIN_SIZE,
because as this stands it's enforcing a min size not exact size.  (I'm
not going to whinge about that aspect of it; the main point here is to
put in the union and fix the ensuing notational fallout.  We can worry
about exactly what size to pad to as a separate discussion.)
