Here's how the real size is calculated before it's allocated:

static inline struct stripe_c *alloc_context(unsigned int stripes)
{
        size_t len;

        if (array_too_big(sizeof(struct stripe_c), sizeof(struct stripe),
                          stripes))
                return NULL;

        len = sizeof(struct stripe_c) + (sizeof(struct stripe) * stripes);

        return kmalloc(len, GFP_KERNEL);
}
