Subject: [PATCH][next] usb: gadget: f_fs: Use struct_size() and
 flex_array_size() helpers

Make use of the struct_size() and flex_array_size() helpers 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

Also, address the following sparse warnings:
drivers/usb/gadget/function/f_fs.c:922:23: warning: using sizeof on a flexible structure
