[PATCH][next] uapi: target: Replace fake flex-array with flexible-array member

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Zero-length arrays as fake flexible arrays are deprecated and we are
moving towards adopting C99 flexible-array members instead.

Address the following warning found with GCC-13 and
-fstrict-flex-arrays=3 enabled:
  CC      drivers/target/target_core_user.o
drivers/target/target_core_user.c: In function ‘queue_cmd_ring’:
drivers/target/target_core_user.c:1096:15: warning: array subscript 0 is outside array bounds of ‘struct iovec[0]’ [-Warray-bounds=]
 1096 |         iov = &entry->req.iov[0];
      |               ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In file included from drivers/target/target_core_user.c:31:
./include/uapi/linux/target_core_user.h:122:38: note: while referencing ‘iov’
  122 |                         struct iovec iov[0];
      |                                      ^~~

This helps with the ongoing efforts to tighten the FORTIFY_SOURCE
routines on memcpy() and help us make progress towards globally
enabling -fstrict-flex-arrays=3 [1].
