infiniband: avoid overflow warning
A sockaddr_in structure on the stack getting passed into rdma_ip2gid triggers this warning, since we memcpy into a larger sockaddr_in6 structure: In function 'memcpy', inlined from 'rdma_ip2gid' at include/rdma/ib_addr.h:175:3, inlined from 'addr_event.isra.4.constprop' at drivers/infiniband/core/roce_gid_mgmt.c:693:2, inlined from 'inetaddr_event' at drivers/infiniband/core/roce_gid_mgmt.c:716:9: include/linux/string.h:305:4: error: call to '__read_overflow2' declared with attribute error: detected read beyond size of object passed as 2nd parameter The warning seems appropriate here, but the code is also clearly correct, so we really just want to shut up this instance of the output. The best way I found so far is to avoid the memcpy() call and instead replace it with a struct assignment.
