Subject[PATCH v2] [next] pcmcia: synclink_cs: replace 1-element array with flex-array member
One-element arrays are deprecated, and we are replacing them with
flexible array members instead. So, replace one-element array with
flexible-array member in struct RXBUF. No changes were required
within the source code because of the existing padding in RXBUF struct

It's worth mentioning that doing a build before/after this patch
results in no binary output differences.

This helps with the ongoing efforts to tighten the FORTIFY_SOURCE
routines on memcpy() and help us make progress towards globally
enabling -fstrict-flex-arrays=3 [1].

- v2: removed changes to how the size of RXBUF was calculated. I
changed my mind after thinking about the existing padding in the
struct. Happy to discuss it if anyone sees it differently.
