It does not matter much here, but actually the structure is supposed to
be user defined, see the msgrcv manual page and you are supposed to pick
the message buffer length accordingly to your needs.

I guess that slightly better fix would be renaming the structure name,
the rest of the msgctl tests uses struct mbuf instead.
