Subject: [PATCH] staging: rtl8723bs: Avoid field-overflowing memcpy()
Date: Fri,  6 Aug 2021 13:14:22 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

In preparation for FORTIFY_SOURCE performing compile-time and run-time
field bounds checking for memcpy(), memmove(), and memset(), avoid
intentionally writing across neighboring fields.

Adjust memcpy() destination to be the named structure itself, rather than
the first member, allowing memcpy() to correctly reason about the size.

"objdump -d" shows no object code changes.

Hi Greg, since I've split out some other patches from my series, it made
sense to send this one directly too. You originally Acked it here:
But since it has no dependencies on my tree, you can take it directly. :)
