yeah... complete confusion...

...IDGI. array_size is/will most often be used to calculate the size of
a one-dimensional array, count*elemsize, accessed as foo[i]. Won't a
three-factor product usually be dim1*dim2*elemsize, i.e. 2-dimensional,
accessed (because C is lame) as foo[i*dim2 + j]?

struct s { int a; char b; char c[]; } has sizeof > offsetof(c), so for
small enough n, we end up allocating less than sizeof(struct s). And the
caller might reasonably do memset(s, 0, sizeof(*s)) to initialize all
members before c. In practice our allocators round up to a multiple of
8, so I don't think it's a big problem, but some sanitizer might
complain. But I do think you should make that addend sizeof() instead of
offsetof().
