Subject: [PATCH 1/3] ACPICA: Replace one-element array with flexible-array
Date: Mon, 20 Jul 2020 10:31:19 -0700
Message-ID: <20200720173121.2580755-2-erik.kaneda@intel.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200720173121.2580755-1-erik.kaneda@intel.com>

ACPICA commit 7ba2f3d91a32f104765961fda0ed78b884ae193d

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 linux codebase from now on.

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