                            ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Originally this was sizeof() the pointer which is clearly wrong.  Then
patch 1 changed it to force that binary_header[] had at least one
element, but now it's changed again to say that binary_header[] can have
zero elements.  So either patch 1 or patch 2 is wrong.

I feel like the probably the correct fix is to just fold these two
patches together and say that binary_header[] with zero elements is
allowed.  But I don't know this code well.

regards,
dan carpenter
