upstream commit
We accidentally send an empty string and a zero uint32 with every channel open, in contravention of our own spec. Fixing this is too hard wrt existing versions that expect these fields to be present and fatal() if they aren't, so document them as "reserved" fields in the PROTOCOL spec as though we always intended this and let us never speak of it again. bz#2529, reported by Ron Frederick Upstream-ID: 34cd326a4d236ca6e39084c4ff796bd97ab833e7
