Yeah, this was over the line, thanks Alex for already taking care of
this. Please note that fd.o mailing lists operate under a CoC:

https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/CodeOfConduct/

Wrt the technical comment: I know that you can only do one variable
sized array, and it must be at the end. But you can put multiple
structures all within the same allocation. Which is what I thought you
wanted to do. And my sketch would allow you to do that even if you
have multiple variable length structures you want to allocate. There's
plenty examples of this (but open-coded ones) in the kernel.

Except in really hot paths I personally think that that kind of
trickery isn't worth it.

Cheers, Daniel
