Subject[PATCH] i40e: fix memcpy with swapped arguments
From: Colin Ian King <>

The current code copies an uninitialized params into
cdev->lan_info.params and then passes the uninitialized params
to the call cdev->client->ops->l2_param_change. I believe the
order of the source and destination in the memcpy is the wrong
way around and should be swapped.

Detected with static analysis by cppcheck
