Subject[PATCH] kexec_file: Adjust type of kexec_purgatory
Defining kexec_purgatory as a zero-length char array upsets compile
time size checking. Since this is entirely runtime sized, switch
this to void *. This silences the warning generated by the future
CONFIG_FORTIFY_SOURCE, which did not like the memcmp() of a "0 byte"
array.
