How about redesigning it a bit to make it more bullet proof... We
could prefix series of fields with the value they are logging.
So for instance, the 4 completion latency fields would include
a clat prefix first:

clat[%lu;%lu;%f;%f],foo[%lu;%lu],etc

Would that not be more resilient to future changes? New fields
would not bother you, and reordering should also be fine.

Any other ideas?
