Subject: [PATCH] implement a union to pad out file_handle

Cases where name_to_handle_at is used allocated the full struct to be
MAX_HANDLE_SZ, and assigned this size to handle_bytes. This is wrong
since handle_bytes should describe the length of the flexible array
member and not the whole struct.

Define a union type which includes sufficient padding to allow
assignment of MAX_HANDLE_SZ to be correct.
