[PATCH] pinctrl: stmfx: Fix hazardous u8[] to unsigned long cast

From: Marc Zyngier
Date: Sun Jul 25 2021 - 14:08:56 EST

Casting a small array of u8 to an unsigned long is *never* OK:

- it does funny thing when the array size is less than that of a long,
as it accesses random places in the stack
- it makes everything even more fun with a BE kernel

Fix this by building the unsigned long used as a bitmap byte by byte,
in a way that works across endianess and has no undefined behaviours.

An extra BUILD_BUG_ON() catches the unlikely case where the array
would be larger than a single unsigned long.
