Subject: [PATCH 3/9] drivers/media: Correct code taking the size of a pointer

From: Julia Lawall <julia@...u.dk>

sizeof(print_buf) is just the size of the pointer.  Change it to the size
used in the allocation of print_buf earlier in the same function.

A simplified version of the semantic patch that finds this problem is as
follows: (http://coccinelle.lip6.fr/)

// <smpl>
@@
expression *x;
expression f;
type T;
@@

*f(...,(T)x,...)
// </smpl>
