In fact this is not how rest of spec does this:

struct virtio_net_hdr {
        u8 flags;
#define VIRTIO_NET_HDR_GSO_NONE        0
#define VIRTIO_NET_HDR_GSO_TCPV4       1
#define VIRTIO_NET_HDR_GSO_UDP         3
#define VIRTIO_NET_HDR_GSO_TCPV6       4
#define VIRTIO_NET_HDR_GSO_ECN      0x80
        u8 gso_type;
        le16 hdr_len;
        le16 gso_size;
        le16 csum_start;
        le16 csum_offset;
        le16 num_buffers;

the advantage is that field width is explicit.
