Subject: [PATCH 2/2] video: ssd1307fb: Improve a size determination in
 ssd1307fb_probe()

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Sat, 25 Nov 2017 16:50:26 +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.
