This statement is to append a struct named rtw89_btc_fbtc_tdma to value field of
a TLV struct, but compiler warns dst of memcpy() because of tlv->val[]. Maybe,
this is a false alarm?

Anyway, for this case, a simple assignment "*v = dm->tdma;" would be easier to
understand what it wants and also avoid compiler warnings. Then, I sent a
patch [1] for this.
