Subject: Re: [PATCH][next] scsi: aacraid: Replace one-element array with
 flexible-array member


Hi Gustavo!

Your changes and the original code do not appear to be functionally
equivalent.

The old code allocated sgeCnt-1 elements (whether that was a mistake or
not I do not know) whereas the new code would send a larger fib to the
ASIC. I don't have any aacraid adapters and I am hesitant to merging
changes that have not been validated on real hardware.
