Subject: [PATCH] staging: rtl8723bs: replace rtw_netdev_priv define with inline function
Date: Sun,  2 Aug 2020 15:42:50 +0300
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The function guarantees type checking of arguments and return value.

Result of rtw_netdev_priv macro can be assigned to pointer
with incompatible type without warning. The function allow compiler
to perform this check.
