Subject: [PATCH] cfg80211: Fix array-bounds warning in fragment copy

__ieee80211_amsdu_copy_frag intentionally initializes a pointer to
array[-1] to increment it later to valid values. clang rightfully
generates an array-bounds warning on the initialization statement.
Work around this by initializing the pointer to array[0] and
decrementing it later, which allows to leave the rest of the
algorithm untouched.
