You should probably explain what VLA is and why this is important to do.

Sure. I can elaborate a little bit more.

You chose to change len to 255, probably because this is a uint8_t but

Correct.

this is way too much for this rtc, it only has 10 consecutive registers.

In that case probably the best solution is to add the following line to the module:

#define MAX_LEN 10

and update the rest of the code as follows:

uint8_t buffer[MAX_LEN + 1];


        buffer[0] = off;
        memcpy(&buffer[1], data, len);

For this particular case it seems to me that the following works just fine:

#define MAX_COUNT 7

u8 tx[MAX_COUNT + 2];

What do you think?

Thanks for your feedback.

tx[0] = MCP795_WRITE;
