Subject: [PATCH] fs/coda: Do not use partially allocated struct

GCC 12 does not like seeing a partially allocated structure being used,
especially when a pointer is being passed out of function scope. Since
only the struct coda_in_hdr member of union inputArgs is being allocated
and used, just replace union inputArgs with struct coda_in_hdr.
