Subject[PATCH 2/2] net: nixge: Address compiler warnings about signedness
Date
Fixes the following warnings:
warning: pointer targets in passing argument 1 of
‘is_valid_ether_addr’ differ in signedness [-Wpointer-sign]
if (mac_addr && is_valid_ether_addr(mac_addr)) {
^~~~~~~~
expected ‘const u8 * {aka const unsigned char *}’ but argument
is of type ‘const char *’
static inline bool is_valid_ether_addr(const u8 *addr)
^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
warning: pointer targets in passing argument 2 of
‘ether_addr_copy’ differ in signedness [-Wpointer-sign]
ether_addr_copy(ndev->dev_addr, mac_addr);
^~~~~~~~
expected ‘const u8 * {aka const unsigned char *}’ but argument
is of type ‘const char *’
static inline void ether_addr_copy(u8 *dst, const u8 *src)
