Subject: [PATCH 2/3] [media] si470x: Improve a size determination in
 si470x_usb_driver_probe()

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Sat, 16 Sep 2017 14:58:06 +0200

Replace the specification of a data structure by a pointer dereference
as the parameter for the operator "sizeof" to make the corresponding size
determination a bit safer according to the Linux coding style convention.

This issue was detected by using the Coccinelle software.
