Right, but I added -Wvla by adding subdir-ccflags-y to my Makefile for
this test, and I don't see the warning.

I tried with gcc 7.3.1 too now (Fedora 27) and it doesn't provoke the
warning, even if apply bc5701d8e27fd (manually). I did ensure with V=1
that it shows up on the compiler command line.

This is on x86-64, are you using something else?

Hmm.

However, I have another trick:

#define __NLA_ENSURE(condition) (0 * sizeof(struct { unsigned int x:1 - 2*!(condition);}))

or, in this context,

#define BUILD_BUG_ON_RET_ZERO(cond) (0 * sizeof(struct { unsigned int x:1 - 2*!(condition);}))


What do you think?
