Subject: Re: [PATCHv2] mISDN: Remove VLAs

From: Laura Abbott <>

> There's an ongoing effort to remove VLAs[1] from the kernel to eventually
> turn on -Wvla. Remove the VLAs from the mISDN code by switching to using
> kstrdup in one place and using an upper bound in another.
> Signed-off-by: Laura Abbott <>

> v2: Switch to a tighter upper bound so we are allocating a more
> reasonable amount on the stack (300). This is based on previous checks
> against this value.
