Yes, they are.  Buuuuuuut, you _can_ make the code around them a little
less evil.  If you _must_ use a typedef, you could do something like

typedef char [XEN_CAP_INFO_LEN_BYTES] xen_capabilities_info_t;

Is that really better than just referencing the typedef? I've always considered them okay for simple scalar and array types, even if they are to be avoided for structure types. Is it the size aspect that is the problem (e.g., a typedef'ed type should be okay to allocate on the stack)?
