s[] is either illegal or it is implicitly sized as though it we s[1]. 
Therefore either linking fails (as we currently do) or the application gets
zero guarantees about the layout of the SSBO regardless of the declared layout
qualifiers because a different shader using the same declaration may implicitly
size s[] to a different size.

This bug is about whether s[] is a link-time error or an implicit size of 1. 
The quoted text above has absolutely nothing to do with that because it
requires that s[] be explicitly sized.
