Description David Binderman 2012-07-24 20:10:19 UTC
I just ran the static analysis checker cppcheck over the source
code of samba-3.6.6

It said

[samba-3.6.6/source3/registry/regfio.c:1470]: (warning) Using sizeof with a numeric constant as function argument might not be what you intended.

The source code is

    memcpy( hbin->header, "hbin", sizeof(HBIN_HDR_SIZE) );

I think you might be better off with

    memcpy( hbin->header, "hbin", HBIN_HDR_SIZE);

git-am fix for 3.6.next.

Ping. Can I get someone to +1 this please. It's a pretty obvious fix that's already in master.
