Subject[PATCH 5.1 001/121] tracing: Silence GCC 9 array bounds warning
Date
From: Miguel Ojeda <miguel.ojeda.sandonis@gmail.com>

commit 0c97bf863efce63d6ab7971dad811601e6171d2f upstream.

Starting with GCC 9, -Warray-bounds detects cases when memset is called
starting on a member of a struct but the size to be cleared ends up
writing over further members.

Such a call happens in the trace code to clear, at once, all members
after and including `seq` on struct trace_iterator:

In function 'memset',
inlined from 'ftrace_dump' at kernel/trace/trace.c:8914:3:
./include/linux/string.h:344:9: warning: '__builtin_memset' offset
[8505, 8560] from the object at 'iter' is out of the bounds of
referenced subobject 'seq' with type 'struct trace_seq' at offset
4368 [-Warray-bounds]
344 | return __builtin_memset(p, c, size);
| ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In order to avoid GCC complaining about it, we compute the address
ourselves by adding the offsetof distance instead of referring
directly to the member.

Since there are two places doing this clear (trace.c and trace_kdb.c),
take the chance to move the workaround into a single place in
the internal header.
