    networking: introduce and use skb_put_data() · 59ae1d12
    Johannes Berg authored
    A common pattern with skb_put() is to just want to memcpy()
    some data into the new space, introduce skb_put_data() for
    this.
    
    An spatch similar to the one for skb_put_zero() converts many
    of the places using it:
    
        @@
        identifier p, p2;
        expression len, skb, data;
        type t, t2;
        @@
        (
        -p = skb_put(skb, len);
        +p = skb_put_data(skb, data, len);
        |
        -p = (t)skb_put(skb, len);
        +p = skb_put_data(skb, data, len);
        )
        (
        p2 = (t2)p;
        -memcpy(p2, data, len);
        |
        -memcpy(p, data, len);
        )
    
        @@
        type t, t2;
        identifier p, p2;
        expression skb, data;
        @@
        t *p;
        ...
        (
        -p = skb_put(skb, sizeof(t));
        +p = skb_put_data(skb, data, sizeof(t));
        |
        -p = (t *)skb_put(skb, sizeof(t));
        +p = skb_put_data(skb, data, sizeof(t));
        )
        (
        p2 = (t2)p;
        -memcpy(p2, data, sizeof(*p));

        )
