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 ioat_dca_priv {
	...
        struct ioat_dca_slot     req_slots[0];
};

Make use of the struct_size() helper instead of an open-coded version
in order to avoid any potential type mistakes.

So, replace the following form:

sizeof(*ioatdca) + (sizeof(struct ioat_dca_slot) * slots)

with:

struct_size(ioatdca, req_slots, slots)

This code was detected with the help of Coccinelle.

Please do not invent subsystem tags, git log should tell you the
convention to be used!

Applied after fixing tags, thanks
