Subject: [PATCH 2/3] tty/serial/ucc_uart: Improve a size determination in
 ucc_uart_probe()

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Wed, 6 Dec 2017 21:45:32 +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.
