Subject: [PATCH] kernel: module: Use struct_size() helper

Make use of the struct_size() helper instead of an open-coded version
in order to avoid any potential type mistakes, in particular in the
context in which this code is being used.

So, replace the following form:

sizeof(*sect_attrs) + nloaded * sizeof(sect_attrs->attrs[0]

with:

struct_size(sect_attrs, attrs, nloaded)

This code was detected with the help of Coccinelle.
