This is an unnecessary performance hit for silencing what is clearly a
false positive. I'm not sure that's the right solution here. It seems
like something that's lacking on the tooling side instead. C language
doesn't allow to express the intent here using flexible array
approach. That doesn't mean that what we are doing here is wrong or
undefined.
