Erk, yes, a bit messy.

You could elide the 8 and checkpatch wouldn't emit a warning.

#define VDREG8(a0) ((const u16[]){			\
	a0 + 0x000, a0 + 0x010, a0 +0x020, a0 + 0x030,	\
	a0 + 0x100, a0 + 0x110, a0 +0x120, a0 + 0x130})

as "const u16[]" is a $Type but "const u16[<digits>]" is not.

Still, as written, the code seems fragile as MACRO[index]
allows index to be any value, maybe larger than the array.
