Subject: [PATCH][next] drm/i915/guc: Use struct_size() helper in kmalloc()

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/gpu/drm/i915/gt/uc/intel_guc_ct.c:792:23: warning: using sizeof on a flexible structure
