Subject[PATCH 4.14 226/237] staging: rtl8723bs: fix copy of overlapping memory
Date
From: Colin Ian King <colin.king@canonical.com>

commit 8ae9a588ca35eb9c32dc03299c5e1f4a1e9a9617 upstream.

Currently the rtw_sprintf prints the contents of thread_name
onto thread_name and this can lead to a potential copy of a
string over itself. Avoid this by printing the literal string RTWHALXT
instread of the contents of thread_name.

Addresses-Coverity: ("copy of overlapping memory")
Fixes: 554c0a3abf21 ("staging: Add rtl8723bs sdio wifi driver")
