Subject: [PATCH] brcmfmac: Replace zero-length array with flexible array member
Date: Sat,  4 Sep 2021 11:22:17 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210904092217.2848-1-len.baker@gmx.com> (raw)

There is a regular need in the kernel to provide a way to declare
having a dynamically sized set of trailing elements in a structure.
Kernel code should always use "flexible array members"[1] for these
cases. The older style of one-element or zero-length arrays should
no longer be used[2].

Also, make use of the struct_size() helper in devm_kzalloc().
