Subject[PATCH] media: mtk-vpu: avoid unaligned access to DTCM buffer.
struct vpu_run *run in vpu_init_ipi_handler() is an ioremapped DTCM (Data
Tightly Coupled Memory) buffer shared with AP. It's not able to do
unaligned access. Otherwise kernel would crash due to unable to handle
kernel paging request.

struct vpu_run {
u32 signaled;
char fw_ver[VPU_FW_VER_LEN];
unsigned int dec_capability;
unsigned int enc_capability;
wait_queue_head_t wq;

fw_ver starts at 4 byte boundary. If system enables
read_word_at_a_time(), which tries to read 8-byte: *(unsigned long *)addr

Copy the string by memcpy_fromio() for this buffer to avoid unaligned

Fixes: 85709cbf1524 ("media: replace strncpy() by strscpy()")
