This kind of memcpy() is error-prone. Its replacement with a struct
assignment is prefered because it's type-safe and much easier to read.
Found by coccinelle. Hand patched and reviewed.
Tested by compilation only.
A simplified version of the semantic match that finds this problem is as
struct struct_name to;
struct struct_name from;
-memcpy(&(to), &(from), E);
+to = from;
