Subject[PATCH 4.4 11/74] PM / sleep: declare __tracedata symbols as char[] rather than char
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Eric Biggers <ebiggers3@gmail.com>

commit f97238373b8662a6d580e204df2e7bcbfa43e27a upstream.

Accessing more than one byte from a symbol declared simply 'char' is undefined
behavior, as reported by UBSAN:

UBSAN: Undefined behaviour in drivers/base/power/trace.c:178:18
load of address ffffffff8203fc78 with insufficient space
for an object of type 'char'

Avoid this by declaring the symbols as arrays.
