Right.

And yeah, that's really the issue, it only matters for ==0. For a moment
there I thought that doesn't even make sense, but it looks like it never
even becomes non-zero.

No idea then, sorry. You'd hope firmware doesn't care about the actual
message size if the inner data says "0 entries", but who knows? And how
many firmware versions are there? :)

So I guess you'd want to stay compatible, even if it means having a

	chan_len = min(cap->peer_chan_len, 1);

for the struct_size()?
