Subject: [PATCH][next] ALSA: virtio: Replace zero-length array with
 flexible-array member

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 kzalloc().
