Subject: [PATCH 2/3] pinctrl: rockchip: Improve a size determination in

From: Markus Elfring <>
Date: Sat, 23 Dec 2017 22:07:30 +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.
