Prevent gcc from issuing a warning upon coffnamecpy

Authored by serge-sans-paille on Feb 15 2020, 12:03 AM.



This is a follow up to d1262a6e9, more explicit to cope with GCC smartness.

The intent is also more explicit now. Otherwise GCC 9.2 inlines coffnamecpy and trigger a (rightful) warning.

Why do we need this if at all? The buffer is initialized to all-zeroes, right? (if not, we'd have to fill all remaining padding with zeroes, not just one byte.)

I've manually checked the fact that out memory has been zeroed, and added an assert to make sure it remains so.

I can confirm that this patch does silence the warning on gcc 9.2.
