Subject: [PATCH v2][next] ALSA: usb-audio: scarlett2: Use struct_size()
 helper in scarlett2_usb()

Make use of the struct_size() helper instead of an open-coded version,
in order to avoid any potential type mistakes or integer overflows that,
in the worst scenario, could lead to heap overflows.

Also, address the following sparse warnings:
sound/usb/mixer_scarlett_gen2.c:1064:28: warning: using sizeof on a flexible structure
sound/usb/mixer_scarlett_gen2.c:1065:29: warning: using sizeof on a flexible structure

Signed-off-by: Gustavo A. R. Silva <>
Changes in v2:
 - Use correct format specifier %zu for type size_t argument.
