Subject: [PATCH 4/6][next] ath6kl: wmi: Replace one-element array with
 flexible-array  member in struct wmi_connect_event

Replace one-element array with flexible-array member in struct
wmi_connect_event.

It's also worth noting that due to the flexible array transformation,
the size of struct wmi_connect_event changed (now the size is 1 byte
smaller), and in order to preserve the logic of before the transformation,
the following change is needed:

	-       if (len < sizeof(struct wmi_connect_event))
	+       if (len <= sizeof(struct wmi_connect_event))

This issue was found with the help of Coccinelle and audited and fixed,
manually.

Hi!

It'd be great if someone can confirm or comment on the following
changes described in the changelog text:

        -       if (len < sizeof(struct wmi_connect_event))
        +       if (len <= sizeof(struct wmi_connect_event))

Thanks
