Bharadiya,Pankaj Sept. 24, 2019, 8:14 a.m. UTC
At present we have 3 different macros to calculate the size of a
member of a struct:
  - SIZEOF_FIELD
  - FIELD_SIZEOF
  - sizeof_field

To bring uniformity in entire kernel source tree let's add
sizeof_member macro.

Replace all occurrences of above 3 macro's with sizeof_member in
future patches.
