* [PATCH] phy: renesas: rcar-gen3-usb2: Fix sysfs interface of "role"

Since the role_store() uses strncmp(), it's possible to refer
out-of-memory if the sysfs data size is smaller than strlen("host").
This patch fixes it by using sysfs_streq() instead of strncmp().

 Just a record. The role_store() doesn't need to check the count because
 the sysfs_streq() checks the first argument is NULL or not.

 On "if (sysfs_streq(buf, "host"))"
  Example 1: echo ho > role
  --> In this case, the count is 3 and the buf has "ho" + NULL.
      So, the third character differs between NULL and 's'.

  Example 2: echo host-is-not-used > role
  --> In this case, the count is 17 and the buf has "host-is-not-used" + NULL.
      So, the fifth character differs between '-' and NULL.

Is that wat you mean? sysfs_streq() doesn't seem to check for NULL pointers.

Isn't the real reason that sysfs (kernfs) guarantees that the passed buffer
is NUL-terminated?

Oops, sorry for unclear. I meant a NULL-terminated string, not NULL pointer.

I doesn't check in detail, but I assume so.

OK.

I have checked that recently, so it is OK.
