Subject: [PATCH] iwlwifi: nvm-parse: use struct_size() in kzalloc()
Date: Tue, 8 Jan 2019 11:55:19 -0600
Message-ID: <20190108175519.GA8878@embeddedor> (raw)

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;
    void *entry[];
};

instance = kzalloc(sizeof(struct foo) + sizeof(void *) * count, GFP_KERNEL);

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

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

This code was detected with the help of Coccinelle.
