Subject: [PATCH 1/6] netfilter: conntrack: avoid gcc-10 zero-length-bounds warning

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@...db.de>

gcc-10 warns around a suspicious access to an empty struct member:

net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_core.c: In function '__nf_conntrack_alloc':
net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_core.c:1522:9: warning: array subscript 0 is outside the bounds of an interior zero-length array 'u8[0]' {aka 'unsigned char[0]'} [-Wzero-length-bounds]
 1522 |  memset(&ct->__nfct_init_offset[0], 0,
      |         ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In file included from net/netfilter/nf_conntrack_core.c:37:
include/net/netfilter/nf_conntrack.h:90:5: note: while referencing '__nfct_init_offset'
   90 |  u8 __nfct_init_offset[0];
      |     ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The code is correct but a bit unusual. Rework it slightly in a way that
does not trigger the warning, using an empty struct instead of an empty
array. There are probably more elegant ways to do this, but this is the
smallest change.
