gcc warns that accessing a pointer based on a numeric constant may
be an offset into a NULL pointer, and would therefore has zero
accessible bytes:

arch/arm/common/sharpsl_param.c: In function ‘sharpsl_save_param’:
arch/arm/common/sharpsl_param.c:43:9: error: ‘memcpy’ reading 64 bytes from a region of size 0 [-Werror=stringop-overread]
   43 |         memcpy(&sharpsl_param, param_start(PARAM_BASE), sizeof(struct sharpsl_param_info));
      |         ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In this particular case, the warning is bogus since this is the actual
pointer, not an offset on a NULL pointer. Add a local variable to shut
up the warning and hope it doesn't come back.
