Subject[PATCH v2][net-next] ice: Replace one-element arrays with flexible-arrays
The current codebase makes use of one-element arrays in the following
form:

struct something {
int length;
u8 data[1];
};

struct something *instance;

instance = kmalloc(sizeof(*instance) + size, GFP_KERNEL);
instance->length = size;
memcpy(instance->data, source, size);

but the preferred mechanism to declare variable-length types such as
these ones is a flexible array member[1][2], introduced in C99:

struct foo {
int stuff;
struct boo array[];
};

By making use of the mechanism above, we will get a compiler warning
in case the flexible array does not occur last in the structure, which
will help us prevent some kind of undefined behavior bugs from being
inadvertently introduced[3] to the codebase from now on. So, replace
the one-element array with a flexible-array member.

Also, make use of the offsetof() helper in order to simplify the macros
that calculate the size of the structures that contain flexible-array
members.

This issue was found with the help of Coccinelle and, audited _manually_.

Changes in v2:
- Use offsetof(struct ice_aqc_sw_rules_elem, pdata) instead of
sizeof(struct ice_aqc_sw_rules_elem) - sizeof(((struct ice_aqc_sw_rules_elem *)0)->pdata)
- Update changelog text.
