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

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

It's also worth noting that due to the flexible array transformation,
the size of struct wmi_aplist_event changed (now the size is 8-byte
smaller), and in order to preserve the logic of before the transformation,
the following change is needed:

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

sizeof(struct wmi_aplist_event) before the flex-array transformation:

struct wmi_aplist_event {
	u8                         ap_list_ver;          /*     0     1 */
	u8                         num_ap;               /*     1     1 */
	union wmi_ap_info          ap_list[1];           /*     2     8 */

	/* size: 10, cachelines: 1, members: 3 */
	/* last cacheline: 10 bytes */
};

sizeof(struct wmi_aplist_event) after the flex-array transformation:

struct wmi_aplist_event {
	u8                         ap_list_ver;          /*     0     1 */
	u8                         num_ap;               /*     1     1 */
	union wmi_ap_info          ap_list[];            /*     2     0 */

	/* size: 2, cachelines: 1, members: 3 */
	/* last cacheline: 2 bytes */
};

Also, make use of the struct_size() helper and remove unneeded variable
ap_info_entry_size.

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_aplist_event))
        +       if (len <= sizeof(struct wmi_aplist_event))

Thanks
