As noted in the "Deprecated Interfaces, Language Features, Attributes,
and Conventions" documentation [1], size calculations (especially
multiplication) should not be performed in memory allocator (or similar)
function arguments due to the risk of them overflowing. This could lead
to values wrapping around and a smaller allocation being made than the
caller was expecting. Using those allocations could lead to linear
overflows of heap memory and other misbehaviors.

So, use the struct_size() helper to do the arithmetic instead of the
argument "size + count * size" in the kzalloc() function.

I have received a email from the linux-media subsystem telling that this
patch is not applicable. The email is the following:

Hello,

The following patch (submitted by you) has been updated in Patchwork:

 * linux-media: net: mana: Prefer struct_size over open coded arithmetic
     - http://patchwork.linuxtv.org/project/linux-media/patch/20210911102818.3804-1-len.baker@gmx.com/
     - for: Linux Media kernel patches
    was: New
    now: Not Applicable

This email is a notification only - you do not need to respond.

The question is: Why it is not applicable?. I have no received any bad comment
and a "Reviewed-by:" tag from Haiyang Zhang. So, what is the reason for the
"Not Applicable" state?.

Regards,
Len

That is the "Media" subsystem patch tracker. The patch appears to be for networking, so the Media tracker has marked it as "not applicable [to the media subsystem]".

The CC list for this patch seems rather wide (media, dri). I would have expected only netdev. Were you using scripts/get_maintainer.pl for getting addresses?

Yes, my workflow is scripts/checkpatch.pl and then scripts/get_maintainer.pl
before sending any patch :)
