and add code comment to make this clear.

This fixes the following -Warray-bounds warning seen after building
ARM with multi_v7_defconfig (GCC 13):
In function 'brcm_avs_get_freq_table',
inlined from 'brcm_avs_cpufreq_init' at drivers/cpufreq/brcmstb-avs-cpufreq.c:623:15:

This helps with the ongoing efforts to tighten the FORTIFY_SOURCE
routines on memcpy() and help us make progress towards globally
enabling -Warray-bounds.
