[Linux-kernel-mentees] [RFC, WIP, v5 05/10] media: vidtv: add wrappers for memcpy and memset

From: "Daniel W. S. Almeida" <dwlsalmeida at gmail.com>

A lot of code in this driver is for serializing structures. This is
error prone.

Therefore, prevent buffer overflows by wrapping memcpy and memset,
comparing the requested length against the buffer size.
