Subject: [PATCH 4.14 125/183] device property: Fix the length used in PROPERTY_ENTRY_STRING()

4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Heikki Krogerus <heikki.krogerus@...ux.intel.com>

commit 2b6e492467c78183bb629bb0a100ea3509b615a5 upstream.

With string type property entries we need to use
sizeof(const char *) instead of the number of characters as
the length of the entry.

If the string was shorter then sizeof(const char *),
attempts to read it would have failed with -EOVERFLOW. The
problem has been hidden because all build-in string
properties have had a string longer then 8 characters until
now.

Fixes: a85f42047533 ("device property: helper macros for property entry creation")
