Subject: [PATCH 2/2] ps3: Improve a size determination in five functions

From: Markus Elfring <elfring@...rs.sourceforge.net>
Date: Sat, 16 Dec 2017 14:21:04 +0100

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