SubjectRe: [PATCH][next] Bluetooth: Use struct_size() helper
From
Date
Hi Gustavo,

> One of the more common cases of allocation size calculations is finding
> the size of a structure that has a zero-sized array at the end, along
> with memory for some number of elements for that array. For example:
>
> struct foo {
> int stuff;
> struct boo entry[];
> };
>
> size = sizeof(struct foo) + count * sizeof(struct boo);
>
> Instead of leaving these open-coded and prone to type mistakes, we can
> now use the new struct_size() helper:
>
> size = struct_size(instance, entry, count);
>
> This code was detected with the help of Coccinelle.
