Subject: [PATCH][next] nouveau/gsp: replace zero-length array with flex-array
 member and use __counted_by

Fake flexible arrays (zero-length and one-element arrays) are deprecated,
and should be replaced by flexible-array members. So, replace
zero-length array with a flexible-array member in `struct

Also annotate array `entries` with `__counted_by()` to 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 via `CONFIG_UBSAN_BOUNDS` (for array
indexing) and `CONFIG_FORTIFY_SOURCE` (for strcpy/memcpy-family functions).

This fixes multiple -Warray-bounds warnings:
drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nvkm/subdev/gsp/r535.c:1069:29: warning: array subscript 0 is outside array bounds of 'PACKED_REGISTRY_ENTRY[0]' [-Warray-bounds=]
drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nvkm/subdev/gsp/r535.c:1070:29: warning: array subscript 0 is outside array bounds of 'PACKED_REGISTRY_ENTRY[0]' [-Warray-bounds=]
drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nvkm/subdev/gsp/r535.c:1071:29: warning: array subscript 0 is outside array bounds of 'PACKED_REGISTRY_ENTRY[0]' [-Warray-bounds=]
drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nvkm/subdev/gsp/r535.c:1072:29: warning: array subscript 0 is outside array bounds of 'PACKED_REGISTRY_ENTRY[0]' [-Warray-bounds=]

While there, also make use of the struct_size() helper, and address warning:
WARNING: please, no spaces at the start of a line

This results in no differences in binary output.
