Subject[PATCH 4.14 12/55] kdb: use memmove instead of overlapping memcpy
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>

commit 2cf2f0d5b91fd1b06a6ae260462fc7945ea84add upstream.

gcc discovered that the memcpy() arguments in kdbnearsym() overlap, so
we should really use memmove(), which is defined to handle that correctly:

In function 'memcpy',
inlined from 'kdbnearsym' at /git/arm-soc/kernel/debug/kdb/kdb_support.c:132:4:
/git/arm-soc/include/linux/string.h:353:9: error: '__builtin_memcpy' accessing 792 bytes at offsets 0 and 8 overlaps 784 bytes at offset 8 [-Werror=restrict]
return __builtin_memcpy(p, q, size);
