commit 6301939d97d079f0d3dbe71e750f4daf5d39fc33 upstream.

MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE() macro used to create aliases to device tables.
Normally alias should have the same type as aliased symbol.

Device tables are arrays, so they have 'struct type##_device_id[x]'
types. Alias created by MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE() will have non-array type -
	'struct type##_device_id'.

This inconsistency confuses compiler, it could make a wrong assumption
about variable's size which leads KASan to produce a false positive report
about out of bounds access.

For every global variable compiler calls __asan_register_globals() passing
information about global variable (address, size, size with redzone, name
...) __asan_register_globals() poison symbols redzone to detect possible
out of bounds accesses.

When symbol has an alias __asan_register_globals() will be called as for
symbol so for alias.  Compiler determines size of variable by size of
variable's type.  Alias and symbol have the same address, so if alias have
the wrong size part of memory that actually belongs to the symbol could be
poisoned as redzone of alias symbol.

By fixing type of alias symbol we will fix size of it, so
__asan_register_globals() will not poison valid memory.
