Subject[PATCH] IB/ehca: use correct destination for memcpy
Date
Using an element of a struct as the address for the memcpy of the whole
struct may introduce a buffer overflow and does not help readability either
simply pass the real thing as first argument to memcpy.

Reported-by: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>
Signed-off-by: Nicholas Mc Guire <hofrat@osadl.org>
---

passing the first element of a struct as destination triggers buffer
overflows warnings in tools like Smatch.
./drivers/infiniband/hw/ehca/ehca_mcast.c:ehca_attach_mcast.80 WARNING:
memcpy copying entire struct to first element
./drivers/infiniband/hw/ehca/ehca_mcast.c:ehca_detach_mcast.117 WARNING:
memcpy copying entire struct to first element

Simply use the structure rather than the first element (which could change)
which also help readability.

Patch was only compile tested with ppc64_defconfig (implies
CONFIG_INFINIBAND_EHCA=m)

Patch is against 4.1-rc3 (localversion-next is -next-20150511)
