    Under some circumstances gcc will generate an internal call to
    memcpy(). Alas this bypasses the pre-processor so memcpy is not
    converted to the kernel's internal memcpy code. The cause is normally
    a structure assignment, probably this line.

    struct seeprom_config *sc = (struct seeprom_config *) scarray;

    Try this replacement

    struct seeprom_config *sc;
    memcpy(sc, scarray, sizeof(*sc));

    The other possibility I can see is

    p->sc = *sc;


    memcpy(&(p->sc), sc, sizeof(*sc));
