Subject: [PATCH] drivers: video: metronomefb: avoid out-of-bounds array access

From: Michal Nazarewicz <mina86@...a86.com>

load_waveform function checks whether padding bytes in stuff2a
and stuff2b are all zero, but does so by treating those arrays
as a single longer array.  Since the structure is packed, and
the size sum matches, it all works, but creates some confusion
in the code.

This commit changes the stuff2a and stuff2b arrays into pad1 and
pad2 fields such that they cover the same bytes as the arrays
covered, and changes the check in the load_waveform function so
that the fields are read instead of iterating over an arary.

It also renames the other “stuff” fields to “ignore*” fields to
give them more semantic meaning.
