[PATCH] fix number of bytes zeroed by sys_fw_init() in arch/ia64/hp/sim/boot/fw-emu.c

From: Roel Kluin <12o3l_at_tiscali.nl>
Date: 2007-11-07 08:13:53
The sizeof a pointer is constant, we want the sizeof what is pointed to.
--
Zero out 'sizeof(*efi_systab)' bytes of the efi_system_table_t pointer
'efi_systab' instead.
