I did some research and it seems that what the macro _INT_ARRAY() does with "sizeof(a)/sizeof(*a)"
is a commonly used way to calculate array sizes and the kernel has even its own macro for that
called ARRAY_SIZE() which Linus asks people to use here [1].

So, I replaced _INTC_ARRAY() with ARRAY_SIZE() (see below), however the kernel's own ARRAY_SIZE()
macro triggers the same compiler warning. I'm CC'ing Michael Karcher who has more knowledge on
writing proper C code than me and maybe an idea how to fix this warning.

Thanks,
Adrian
