The "name" field of struct vnic_login_client_data is a char array of
undefined length. This should be written as "char name[]" so the compiler
can make better decisions about the field (for example, not assuming
it's a single character). This was noticed while trying to tighten the
CONFIG_FORTIFY_SOURCE checking.
