Hi Gustavo!

I see you've sent similar cleanup patches elsewhere, do you think you
could reword your commit message to be more similar to your patch here
for instance:

	https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/6/5/856

It does a *much* better job of explaining the motivation and usage of
struct_size().

Thank you!

Jessica
