Subject: [PATCH v2][next] cxgb4/ch_ktls: Fix undefined behavior bug in struct

`struct tls_offload_context_tx` is a flexible structure, which means
that it contains a flexible-array member at the bottom. This could
potentially lead to an overwrite of the objects following `base` in
`struct chcr_ktls_ofld_ctx_tx` at run-time.

Notice that flexible-array member `driver_state` in `struct
tls_offload_context_tx` can grow up to 16 bytes:

| include/net/tls.h-170:

| include/net/tls.h-173:
| #define TLS_OFFLOAD_CONTEXT_SIZE_TX                                     \
|	(sizeof(struct tls_offload_context_tx) + TLS_DRIVER_STATE_SIZE_TX)

| net/tls/tls_device.c-1119:
| offload_ctx = kzalloc(TLS_OFFLOAD_CONTEXT_SIZE_TX, GFP_KERNEL);

Fix this by placing the declaration of object `base` at the end of
`struct chcr_ktls_ofld_ctx_tx`.

-Wflex-array-member-not-at-end is coming in GCC-14, and we are getting
ready to enable it globally.

Fixes: 34aba2c45024 ("cxgb4/chcr : Register to tls add and del callback")
