[ Upstream commit a158531f3c92467df0e93e000d58185acae78a6e ]

Commit 7ebc194d0fd4bb0f ("gpio: 74x164: Introduce 'enable-gpios'
property") added a new member gpiod_oe to the end of the struct
gen_74x164_chip, after the zero-length buffer array.

However, this buffer is a flexible array, allocated together with the
structure during .probe().  As the buffer is no longer the last member,
writing to it corrupts the newly added member after it.
During device removal, the corrupted member will be used as a pointer,
leading to a crash.

This went unnoticed, as the flexible array was declared as "buffer[0]"
instead of "buffer[]", and thus did not trigger a "flexible array member
not at end of struct" error from gcc.

Move the gpiod_oe field up to fix this, and drop the zero from the array
size to prevent future similar bugs.
