Huh, actually it's not __counted_by() since this shows up with
arm64/gcc-10 (and some other arches) which doesn't have that.  I'll
submit the __counted_by() patch anyway since it's clearly a good
annotation but it doesn't actually shut the warning up in this case.
Adding the hardening people, and I'll have a further look.

You can reproduce with

   tuxmake -r docker -k defconfig -a arm64 -t gcc-10
