Thanks! Unfortunately I now got another warning for the same function,
and though I would have expected the patch to fix it, that did not work:

In file included from /git/arm-soc/drivers/net/wireless/intersil/prism54/islpci_dev.h:27:0,
from /git/arm-soc/drivers/net/wireless/intersil/prism54/isl_ioctl.h:24,
from /git/arm-soc/drivers/net/wireless/intersil/prism54/isl_ioctl.c:32:

memcpy(stream + point_len, extra, iwe->u.data.length);

The change below kills that warning too, but it gets even uglier there:

diff --git a/include/net/iw_handler.h b/include/net/iw_handler.h
index 1a41043688bc..c2aa73e5e6bb 100644

- if (iwe->u.data.length)

memcpy(stream + point_len, extra, iwe->u.data.length);
stream += event_len;
}
Let me know if you want a proper follow-up patch, or if you can amend your
commit, or you have a better idea for resolving that warning.
