Seconded. I also enjoy the humiliation of other in email, but it doesn't
helps us getting code written and problems solved in a professional

BTW: Is there actually good documentation how to correctly do the
variable length array at end of structure thing in the kernel?
I do know that I've seen a lot of different variants like array
array or array and I have also seen a bunch of gcc versions
failing to generate correct code for some of them.
So we should probably nail down how to do things correctly.

Well for kmalloc() it's not that much overhead, but with vmalloc that is
a completely different picture.
