[PATCH v1.4 1/5] lib: hex2bin converts ascii hexadecimal string to binary

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Similar to the kgdb_hex2mem() code, hex2bin converts a string
to binary using the hex_to_bin() library call.

Changelog:
- Replace parameter names with src/dst (based on David Howell's comment)
- Add 'const' where needed (based on David Howell's comment)
- Replace int with size_t (based on David Howell's comment)
