Subject: [PATCH] mtd: rawnand: rockchip: Use struct_size()

Use struct_size() instead of hand writing it.
This is less verbose and more robust.

While at it, prepare for the coming implementation by GCC and Clang of the
__counted_by attribute. Flexible array members annotated with __counted_by
can have their accesses bounds-checked at run-time checking via
strcpy/memcpy-family functions).

Also remove a useless comment about the position of a flex-array in a

Signed-off-by: Christophe JAILLET <>
This patch is part of a work done in parallel of what is currently worked
on by Kees Cook.

My patches are only related to corner cases that do NOT match the
semantic of his Coccinelle script[1].

In this case, struct_size() was not used to compute the size needed for the
structure and its flex array.
