Use like [1] ...

[1]: https://...

Or maybe introduce is as a tag DocLink:, for example?
Or Datasheet: ?

In both cases it's pointer arithmetic, right? Even look at the example
of netdev you gave below, they haven't done these (redundant) checks.
The outcome that crashes if any will be more distinct.

Good point.

It seems it lacks of this kind of allocation size checks... Perhaps add one?
Kees, what do you think?

I think it makes code dirty (too much protective programming). We have
a lot places where we can shoot our feet, but at least not hiding the
issue is a benefit in my opinion.

There is a rationale behind this. If there is a weird case of adding
entry behind the terminator, you will see it immediately at compile
time (consider automatic rebase).

Ditto.

I guess this check is redundant since following OF calls will fail anyway.

Even better. But see above note.
