Although drivers do not directly get access to the private data of
instruction patterns, let's use unnamed union field to be consistent
with nand_op_instr.

I did not know commit c1a72e2dbb4.

We can drop the union name if and only if we are "100% sure" about the safety.
I cannot prove it.

Generally, 0day bot helps us.
Last time, nobody noticed the build error until Andrew reported it.
So, we cannot count on the 0day bot.


Less praise for this work.
Lots of criticism once I break it.

So, I have no reason to take the risk.
