@laboger requests we backport the fix to #15135 (44f80f6, for Go 1.6.2.

This bug is to consider that.

It only affects ppc64, and makes Docker run there.

Just to be clear, above where Brad says it only affects ppc64, I believe he means generically both GOARCH values for POWER, ppc64le and ppc64, not just ppc64 (big endian).

The existing epoll_event structure used by many of
the epoll_* syscalls was defined incorrectly
for use with ppc64le & ppc64 in the syscall
directory.  This resulted in the caller getting
incorrect information on return from these
syscalls.  This caused failures in fsnotify as
well as builds with upstream Docker.  The
structure is defined correctly in gccgo.

This adds a pad field that is expected for
these syscalls on ppc64le, ppc64.
Fixes #15135

Fixes #15288
