I think this should likely lose VMCI_HANDLE_ARRAY_HEADER_SIZE entirely
and the helper to use sizeof() and struct_size() directly, but probably
as a separate patch.

It looks correct to me:

                new_array = krealloc(array, new_size, GFP_ATOMIC);
		...
                new_array->capacity += capacity_bump;

i.e. "capacity" is adjusted up before accessing any "entries".
