Subject: [PATCH][next] staging: r8188eu: Use zeroing allocator in wpa_set_encryption()
Date: Mon, 11 Oct 2021 21:46:24 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20211012024624.GA1062447@embeddedor> (raw)

Use zeroing allocator rather than allocator followed by memset with 0.

This issue was detected with the help of Coccinelle.
