Subject: [PATCH] staging: greybus: loopback_test: fix potential path
commit f16023834863932f95dfad13fac3fc47f77d2f29 upstream.
Newer GCC warns about a possible truncation of a generated sysfs path
name as we're concatenating a directory path with a file name and
placing the result in a buffer that is half the size of the maximum
length of the directory path (which is user controlled).
loopback_test.c: In function 'open_poll_files':
loopback_test.c:651:31: warning: '%s' directive output may be truncated writing up to 511 bytes into a region of size 255 [-Wformat-truncation=]
651 | snprintf(buf, sizeof(buf), "%s%s", dev->sysfs_entry, "iteration_count");
| ^~
loopback_test.c:651:3: note: 'snprintf' output between 16 and 527 bytes into a destination of size 255
651 | snprintf(buf, sizeof(buf), "%s%s", dev->sysfs_entry, "iteration_count");
| ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Fix this by making sure the buffer is large enough the concatenated
