[PATCH] net: spider_net: Use struct_size() helper

From: Gustavo A. R. Silva
Date: Wed Aug 28 2019 - 16:21:21 EST

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 spider_net_card {
struct spider_net_descr darray[0];

Make use of the struct_size() helper instead of an open-coded version
in order to avoid any potential type mistakes.

So, replace the following form:

sizeof(struct spider_net_card) + (tx_descriptors + rx_descriptors) * sizeof(struct spider_net_descr)


struct_size(card, darray, tx_descriptors + rx_descriptors)

Notice that, in this case, variable alloc_size is not necessary, hence it
is removed.

Building: allmodconfig powerpc.

This code was detected with the help of Coccinelle.
