hm?

Please, just look again at [0]:
| struct p54_scan_body *chan = &body->normal;
| struct pda_pa_curve_data *curve_data =
| (void *) priv->curve_data->data;
|
| entry += sizeof(__le16);
| chan->pa_points_per_curve = 8;
| memset(chan->curve_data, 0, sizeof(chan->curve_data));
| memcpy(chan->curve_data, entry,
| sizeof(struct p54_pa_curve_data_sample) *
| min((u8)8, curve_data->points_per_channel));

yes: "curve_data" is a pointer. But memset and memcpy are using
"chan->curve_data". chan is a pointer to a p54_scan_body struct.
The structure is defined in lmac.h:

|struct p54_pa_curve_data_sample {
| u8 rf_power;
| u8 pa_detector;
| u8 data_barker;
| u8 data_bpsk;
| u8 data_qpsk;
| u8 data_16qam;
| u8 data_64qam;
| u8 padding;
|} __packed;
|
|struct p54_scan_body {
| u8 pa_points_per_curve;
| u8 val_barker;
| u8 val_bpsk;
| u8 val_qpsk;
| u8 val_16qam;
| u8 val_64qam;
| struct p54_pa_curve_data_sample curve_data[8];
| u8 dup_bpsk;
| u8 dup_qpsk;
| u8 dup_16qam;
| u8 dup_64qam;
|} __packed;

p54_scan_body's curve_data is an array of eight
p54_pa_curve_data_sample, each with eight u8.
This means that chan->curve_data is 64 bytes in total.

If you are not convinced yet, please add:

BUILD_BUG_ON(sizeof(chan->curve_data) != 64);

next to the memset and compile the driver.
If this was all wrong, this would cause a build error, right?

Regards,
Christian
