Looks fine to me, could you provide a git-formatted patch (so there are
authorship information in it) please?

I know it, and the "missing" initializer are expected to be missing.
Actually -Wmissing-field-initializers warns about fields implicitly
initialized to 0, which is not a real problem but that "often" is
unwanted.  Here it's wanted not to clutter the initializer lists with
plenty of zeros, and there is even a note on the top of the file.

However, if it's a problem for many readers, we could imagine adding a
plenty of 0/FALSE everywhere, though I don't think it's necessary.
Actually the better would be to have a portable way to disable this
warning only for this particular file, but I'm not sure it's easy?
