clk: npcm7xx: fix memory allocation
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); Notice that, currently, there is a bug during the allocation: sizeof(npcm7xx_clk_data) should be sizeof(*npcm7xx_clk_data) Fix this bug by using struct_size() in kzalloc() This issue was detected with the help of Coccinelle.
