Why do your believe the available size is only '1'? A SSID is expected
to be of size IEEE80211_MAX_SSID_LE/32 and the wildcard_ssid_tlv pointer
is casted from tlv_pos (some lines above) which is a pointer/index into
scan_cfg_out->tlv_buf...

And the define (line 44) indicates there should be enough space for a SSID:

  42 /* Memory needed to store a max number/size WildCard SSID TLV for a firmware
  43         scan */
  44 #define WILDCARD_SSID_TLV_MAX_SIZE  \
  45         (MWIFIEX_MAX_SSID_LIST_LENGTH *                                 \
  46                 (sizeof(struct mwifiex_ie_types_wildcard_ssid_params)   \
  47                         + IEEE80211_MAX_SSID_LEN))

For sure something to improve here instead of using a confusing 'u8 ssid[1]'
in struct mwifiex_ie_types_wildcard_ssid_params...

Regards,
Peter
