Yes. And FYI, this field is here so that
| sizeof(struct es58x_fd_urb_cmd)
returns the correct maximum size.

And, of course, because this structure will be sent to the
device, there is no possibility to reorder those fields.

Thanks for the explanation. That makes sense.

At the end, the only goal of raw_msg[] is to have a tag pointing
to the beginning of the union. It would be virtually identical to
something like:
|    u8 raw_msg[];
|    union {
|        /* ... */
|    } __packed ;

I had a look at your work and especially at your struct_group() macro.
Do you think it would make sense to introduce a union_group()?

Result would look like:

|    union_group_attr(urb_msg, __packed, /* raw_msg renamed to urb_msg */
|        struct es58x_fd_tx_conf_msg tx_conf_msg;
|        u8 tx_can_msg_buf[ES58X_FD_TX_BULK_MAX * ES58X_FD_CANFD_TX_LEN];
|        u8 rx_can_msg_buf[ES58X_FD_RX_BULK_MAX * ES58X_FD_CANFD_RX_LEN];
|        struct es58x_fd_echo_msg echo_msg[ES58X_FD_ECHO_BULK_MAX];
|        struct es58x_fd_rx_event_msg rx_event_msg;
|        struct es58x_fd_tx_ack_msg tx_ack_msg;
|        __le64 timestamp;
|        __le32 rx_cmd_ret_le32;
|    );

And I can then use urb_msg in place of the old raw_msg (might
need a bit of rework here and there but I can take care of it).

This is the most pretty way I can think of to remove this zero length array.
Keeping the raw_msg[] but with another size seems odd to me.

Or maybe I would be the only one using this feature in the full
tree? In that case, maybe it would make sense to keep the
union_group_attr() macro local to the etas_es58x driver?

Yours sincerely,
Vincent
