You can mention ARM platform here, and that this issue starts with
kernel 5.2 (and I would try to mention this in the title as well).
This is better than an annotation that will be lost.

However, we are in internal structures and I can't think of an impact
So we might as well use dynamic allocations rather than just enlarge this array.
Did you consider this?
