Probably the simplest solution would be
to treat it as fixed size and use the maximum possible size for
Specifying a buffer of size
sizeof(struct inotify_event) + NAME_MAX + 1
will be sufficient to read at least one event.

uint32_t len; /* Length (including NULs) of name. */
char name __flexarr; /* Name. */
Note that name field is variably sized. I believe in C you would allocate a larger block of memory and then cast it to (inotify_event*).
By the skills of copy and paste i can do fixed size,and i can do a blob. But not a variable struct.
Some help would be appreciated.
