Subject[PATCH] x86: xen: remove the use of VLAIS
Date
Variable Length Arrays In Structs (VLAIS) is not supported by Clang, and
frowned upon by others.

https://lkml.org/lkml/2013/9/23/500

Here, the VLAIS was used because the size of the bitmap returned from
xen_mc_entry() depended on possibly (based on kernel configuration)
runtime sized data. Rather than declaring args as a VLAIS then calling
sizeof on *args, we can define the variable length array (mask) to be a
pointer, and calculate the appropriate sizeof args manually. Further, we
can get rid of the #ifdef's and rely on num_possible_cpus() (thanks to a
helpful checkpatch warning from an earlier version of this patch).
