Subjectlinux-next: build failure after merge of the akpm tree
Hi all,

After merging the akpm tree, today's linux-next build (x86_64
allmodconfig) failed like this:

In file included from include/linux/bitmap.h:8:0,
from include/linux/cpumask.h:11,
from include/linux/mm_types_task.h:13,
from include/linux/mm_types.h:4,
from include/linux/kmemcheck.h:4,

from include/linux/if_ether.h:23,
from include/linux/etherdevice.h:25,
from drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/fpga/cmd.c:33:
In function 'memcpy',
inlined from 'mlx5_fpga_query_qp' at drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/fpga/cmd.c:194:2:
include/linux/string.h:315:4: error: call to '__read_overflow2' declared with attribute error: detected read beyond size of object passed as 2nd parameter

Caused by commit

c151149cc4db ("include/linux/string.h: add the option of fortified string.h functions")

interacting with commit

6062118d5cd2 ("net/mlx5: FPGA, Add FW commands for FPGA QPs")

from the net-next tree.

I took a guess and tried the following patch which seemed to work.
