Please always look deeper at the code and do not simply take
any checkpatch suggestion as the "best" fix.

Using this struct style with an embedded length is error prone
and would likely be better as a simple char * array.

Also, the existing sprintf use of mode_string and mode_size is
nonsensical. There is nothing to format in any of the mode_size.
so the use of mode_size as an argument is silly.

Perhaps something like this would be better:
