Thanks Martin -

Sure, that way looks fine to me too.  I suppose adding the explicit pad
doesn't actually change anything on most architectures, so maybe that's
a little safer without the version bump, but probably best to be
explicit about it as you have done.

Jens, want to pick up this patch instead, then?

Thanks,
