Subject: [PATCH 2/2] [media] fc0012: Improve a size determination in
 fc0012_attach()

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Sat, 16 Sep 2017 17:55:27 +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.
