Subject: [PATCH 2/2] ASoC: da7213: Improve a size determination in

From: Markus Elfring <>
Date: Thu, 23 Nov 2017 18:15:30 +0100

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.
