Subject: [PATCH 1/2] mux: Turn 'mux' into a flexible array in 'struct mux_chip'

The 'mux' array stored in 'struct mux_chip' can be changed into a flexible
array.

This saves:
   - a pointer in the structure
   - an indirection when accessing the array
   - some pointer arithmetic when computing and storing the address in
     'mux'

It is also now possible to use __counted_by() and struct_size() for
additional safety.

The address for the 'priv' memory is computed with mux_chip_priv(). It
should work as good with a flexible array.

The struct_size() goodies only work if sizeof_priv is 0. Adding an
additional size_add() would make it safe in all cases but would make code
less readable (IMHO).
