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

instance = kmalloc(sizeof(struct foo) + count * sizeof(struct boo), GFP_KERNEL);

Instead of leaving these open-coded and prone to type mistakes, we can
now use the new struct_size() helper:

instance = kmalloc(struct_size(instance, entry, count), GFP_KERNEL);

Looks good.

I take that back, you obviously didn't even compile this patch. Never
send untested crap, without explicitly saying so.

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 bio_map_data {
	...
        struct iovec iov[];
};

instance = kmalloc(sizeof(sizeof(struct bio_map_data) + sizeof(struct iovec) *
                          count, GFP_KERNEL);

Instead of leaving these open-coded and prone to type mistakes, we can
now use the new struct_size() helper:

instance = kmalloc(struct_size(instance, iov, count), GFP_KERNEL);

This code was detected with the help of Coccinelle.
