I'm not sure that's possible w/o marking the struct packed just for
the sake of it. The other issue is that this section is sitting in RO
while also being written to. The other thing, which has been known for
awhile, is that we can't take advantage of symbols being equal for an
empty set since C says no two symbols can be the same. I'm sure the
language lawyers will correct me where I got that wrong.
