Ah! now i think i get it.

Although *rtl8152_gstrings == rtl8152_gstrings in terms of addresses,
the compiler sees that *rtl8152_gstrings is sizeof(ETH_GSTRING_LEN),
but we are copying sizeof(rtl8152_gstrings), so it will issue a
warning. So you remove the * to indicate we are interesting in the
whole structure of arrays.
