You probably didn't mean to pass a static array, because those are
passed by value and may entail unnecessary copying. (Though in this
case, if you're only expecting 12 bytes, that's not that big of a

But in any case, probably something like this would do:

        void foo(void[] arr)
        in { assert(arr.length == 12); }
        do {
