[vlc-devel] [PATCH 6/7] config: use flexible array member instead of a zero length array

ISO C was the same as ANSI C for me, OK.

Could you give me a reference for this?
I've found the following:
As a special case, the last element of a structure with more than one
named member may have an incomplete array type; this is called a
flexible array member. In most situations, the flexible array member
is ignored. In particular, the size of the structure is as if the
flexible array member were omitted except that it may have more
trailing padding than the omission would imply.
