I am just talking about the name of weirdly named macro here.

Again, just talking about the name.

Sure I never said the patch has a bug.

Again, never said the patch is buggy.

I don't follow why we are talking about non-binderfs validation. I am just
saying a memcpy of the name could have been avoided for regular binder
devices. But since Todd Acked it, I wont stand in the way..
