devres: Align data[] to ARCH_KMALLOC_MINALIGN (2018-11-11 11:40:04 -0800)

Driver core fix for 4.20-rc5

Here is a single driver core fix for 4.20-rc5

It resolves an issue with the data alignment in 'struct devres' for the
ARC platform. The full details are in the commit changelog, but the
short summary is the change is a single line:
- unsigned long long data[]; /* guarantee ull alignment */
+ u8 __aligned(ARCH_KMALLOC_MINALIGN) data[];

This has been in linux-next for a while with no reported issues.
