Subject: [PATCH][next] wifi: carl9170: Replace fake flex-array with
 flexible-array member

Zero-length arrays as fake flexible arrays are deprecated and we are
moving towards adopting C99 flexible-array members instead.

Address the following warnings found with GCC-13 and
-fstrict-flex-arrays=3 enabled:
drivers/net/wireless/ath/carl9170/tx.c:702:61: warning: array subscript i is outside array bounds of ‘const struct _carl9170_tx_status[0]’ [-Warray-bounds=]
drivers/net/wireless/ath/carl9170/tx.c:701:65: warning: array subscript i is outside array bounds of ‘const struct _carl9170_tx_status[0]’ [-Warray-bounds=]

This helps with the ongoing efforts to tighten the FORTIFY_SOURCE
routines on memcpy() and help us make progress towards globally
enabling -fstrict-flex-arrays=3 [1].
