FWIW, this patch solves an -Warray-bounds warning that is seen under
-fstrict-flex-arrays=3 (coming soon[1]):

../drivers/scsi/aacraid/commsup.c:1166:17: warning: array index 1 is past the end of the array (which contains 1 element) [-Warray-bounds]
                                (((__le32 *)aifcmd->data)[1] == cpu_to_le32(3));
                                            ^             ~
../drivers/scsi/aacraid/aacraid.h:2620:2: note: array 'data' declared here
        u8 data[1];             /* Undefined length (from kernel viewpoint) */
        ^
../drivers/scsi/aacraid/commsup.c:1286:20: warning: array index 3 is past the end of the array (which contains 1 element) [-Warray-bounds]
                                  ((((__le32 *)aifcmd->data)[3]
                                               ^             ~
