foo.c:11:23: warning: argument to ‘sizeof’ in ‘memset’ call is the
same expression as the destination; did you mean to dereference it?
  memset(bar, 0, sizeof(bar));

Either it should be memset(&intel_dp->edp_dpcd, ...), or it should be
sizeof(*intel_dp->edp_dpcd). Unless the intention is genuinely just to
clear the size of one pointer and not the entire structure, in which
case this is terribly misleading.
