[PATCH 2/2] dma/ppc4xx: Improve a size determination in ppc440spe_adma_alloc_chan_resources()




From: Markus Elfring <elfring@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Date: Tue, 13 Feb 2018 20:54:30 +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.
