Subject: [PATCH][next] USB: serial: ti_usb_3410_5052: Use struct_size()
 helper in ti_write_byte()

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:
drivers/usb/serial/ti_usb_3410_5052.c:1521:16: warning: using sizeof on a flexible structure
