One of the more common cases of allocation size calculations is finding
the size of a structure that has a zero-sized array at the end, along
with memory for some number of elements for that array. For example:

struct foo {
   int stuff;
   struct boo entry[];
};

instance = kzalloc(sizeof(struct foo) + count * sizeof(struct boo), GFP_KERNEL);

Instead of leaving these open-coded and prone to type mistakes, we can
now use the new struct_size() helper:

instance = kzalloc(struct_size(instance, entry, count), GFP_KERNEL);

This code was detected with the help of Coccinelle.

Hi all,

Friendly ping:

Who can take this, please?

Thanks

Thank you for the reminder.  I'm just getting back from LSS and a very
short vacation.  I'll look at it shortly.

The same usage exists in ima_api.c: ima_alloc_init_template().  Did
you want to make the change there as well?

thanks,

Mimi

Yep. I'll write a patch for that one too.

Thanks
