    xen/include: public: Document the padding in struct xen_hvm_param
    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.
