Since this is a uAPI header I gotta ask - are you 100% sure that it's
okay to rename this field?

I didn't grasp from just reading the patches whether this is a uAPI or
just internal kernel flag, seems like the former from the reading of
the comment in patch 2. In which case what guarantees that existing
users don't pass in garbage since the kernel doesn't check it was 0?
