Subject: [PATCH][next] hwspinlock: stm32: Use struct_size() helper in

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/hwspinlock/stm32_hwspinlock.c:84:32: warning: using sizeof on a flexible structure
