Subject: [PATCH v2] Drivers: hv: vmbus: Split memcpy of flex-array

To work around a misbehavior of the compiler's ability to see into
composite flexible array structs (as detailed in the coming memcpy()
hardening series[1]), split the memcpy() of the header and the payload
so no false positive run-time overflow warning will be generated. This
results in the already inlined memcpy getting unrolled a little more,
which very slightly increases text size:

$ size drivers/hv/vmbus_drv.o.before drivers/hv/vmbus_drv.o
   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
  22968    5239     232   28439    6f17 drivers/hv/vmbus_drv.o.before
  23032    5239     232   28503    6f57 drivers/hv/vmbus_drv.o

Avoids the run-time false-positive warning:

  memcpy: detected field-spanning write (size 212) of single field "&ctx->msg" at drivers/hv/vmbus_drv.c:1133 (size 16)
