    OPENAFS-SA-2018-003 rxgen: prevent unbounded input arrays
    RPCs with unbounded arrays as inputs are susceptible to remote
    denial-of-service (DOS) attacks.  A malicious client may submit an RPC
    request with an arbitrarily large array, forcing the server to expend
    large amounts of network bandwidth, cpu cycles, and heap memory to
    unmarshal the input.
    Instead, issue an error message and stop rxgen when it detects an RPC
    defined with an unbounded input array.  Thus we will detect the problem
    at build time and prevent any future unbounded input arrays.
    (cherry picked from commit a4c1d5c48deca2ebf78b1c90310b6d56b3d48af6)
