But this was when some named initializers are used in a union with
unnamed members like 'union bpf_attr', unsure if this would break with
the above case where no named initializers are being used.

Having that said, the above is gratuitous, the code that is being
replaced is not related to the patch at hand, and conceptually the end
result should be the same.

So, please, just leave it as is, i.e. using bzero() and make your patch
a bit smaller, remember, small is good, smaller is even better ;-)
