mm/swapfile.c: use struct_size() in kvzalloc()
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; struct boo entry[]; }; size = sizeof(struct foo) + count * sizeof(struct boo); instance = kvzalloc(size, GFP_KERNEL); Instead of leaving these open-coded and prone to type mistakes, we can now use the new struct_size() helper: instance = kvzalloc(struct_size(instance, entry, count), GFP_KERNEL); Notice that, in this case, variable size is not necessary, hence it is removed. This code was detected with the help of Coccinelle. Link: Signed-off-by: Gustavo A. R. Silva <> Reviewed-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
