scripts/coccinelle/misc/memcpy-assign.cocci: Replace memcpy with struct assignment
Peter Senna Tschudin [Wed, 23 Jan 2013 22:06:30 +0000 (20:06 -0200)]
There are error-prone memcpy() that can be replaced by struct
assignment that are type-safe and much easier to read. This semantic
patch looks for memcpy() that can be replaced by struct assignment.
