    vd_agent: Do not define structures without fields
    According to C standard the size of a structure without fields is
    not defined (see
    As we almost only use GCC currently these structures are of size 0.
    This can became a problem if 2 sides talking a given protocol use
    these structures.
    To avoid such possible mismatch (for instance having one side C and
    the other C++ which defines these structures as having 1 as size) add
    an empty (0-size array) field.
    Although a 0-size array is not considered also that portable we use
    extensively this feature with different compilers never encountering
