Subject[PATCH v2 20/35] platform/x86/asus: Use kmemdup rather than duplicating its implementation
Date
kmemdup is introduced to duplicate a region of memory in a neat way.
Rather than kmalloc/kzalloc + memcpy, which the programmer needs to
write the size twice (sometimes lead to mistakes), kmemdup improves
readability, leads to smaller code and also reduce the chances of mistakes.
Suggestion to use kmemdup rather than using kmalloc/kzalloc + memcpy.

Changes in v2:
- Fix a typo in commit message (memset -> memcpy)
- Split into two patches.
