Indeed %COMPAT seems like the answer. However, isn't that keyword
confusing? How about adding %DISABLE_MAC_PADDING? Today those two
keywords would do the same, but if we encounter other compatibility
hacks, %COMPAT would also enable them, but %DISABLE_MAC_PADDING would
only disable MAC padding. It seems better to introduce this today
rather than when the next compatibility hack is introduced.
