Subject: Re: [PATCH][next] media: venus: hfi_cmds.h: Replace one-element array
 with flexible-array member

Hi all,

Friendly ping:

We are about to be able to globally enable -Warray-bounds and, this is one of the
last out-of-bounds warnings in linux-next.

Could someone take this, please?

Thanks
