I'm a bit confused, so based on your reply to v1 of this series, this patch
is now correct, right?

The operator in v1 _was_ correct as long as the one-element array wasn't
transformed into a flexible array, right?

Notice that generally speaking flexible-array members don't occupy space in the
containing structure:

$ pahole -C imgu_fw_header drivers/staging/media/ipu3/ipu3-css-fw.o
struct imgu_fw_header {
	struct imgu_fw_bi_file_h   file_header;          /*     0    72 */
	/* --- cacheline 1 boundary (64 bytes) was 8 bytes ago --- */
	struct imgu_fw_info        binary_header[] __attribute__((__aligned__(8))); /*    72     0 */

	/* size: 72, cachelines: 2, members: 2 */
	/* forced alignments: 1 */
	/* last cacheline: 8 bytes */
} __attribute__((__aligned__(8)));

$ pahole -C imgu_fw_header drivers/staging/media/ipu3/ipu3-css-fw.o
struct imgu_fw_header {
	struct imgu_fw_bi_file_h   file_header;          /*     0    72 */
	/* --- cacheline 1 boundary (64 bytes) was 8 bytes ago --- */
	struct imgu_fw_info        binary_header[1] __attribute__((__aligned__(8))); /*    72  1200 */

	/* size: 1272, cachelines: 20, members: 2 */
	/* forced alignments: 1 */
	/* last cacheline: 56 bytes */
} __attribute__((__aligned__(8)));

So, now that the flexible array transformation is included in the same patch as the
bugfix, the operator is changed from '<' to '<='

Can you please confirm if this v2 is now correct? if so, it'd be great to have your
Reviewed-by tag. :)

Thanks!
