Subject[PATCH 3.16 225/346] printk: fix parsing of "brl=" option
3.16.39-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Nicolas Iooss <nicolas.iooss_linux@m4x.org>

commit ae6c33ba6e37eea3012fe2640b22400ef3f2d0f3 upstream.

Commit bbeddf52adc1 ("printk: move braille console support into separate
braille.[ch] files") moved the parsing of braille-related options into
_braille_console_setup(), changing the type of variable str from char*
to char**. In this commit, memcmp(str, "brl,", 4) was correctly updated
to memcmp(*str, "brl,", 4) but not memcmp(str, "brl=", 4).

Update the code to make "brl=" option work again and replace memcmp()
with strncmp() to make the compiler able to detect such an issue.

Fixes: bbeddf52adc1 ("printk: move braille console support into separate braille.[ch] files")
