Subject: [PATCH v2] drivers/iio: Remove all strcpy() uses in favor of strscpy()

strcpy() performs no bounds checking on the destination buffer. This
could result in linear overflows beyond the end of the buffer, leading
to all kinds of misbehaviors. The safe replacement is strscpy().

This patch is an effort to clean up the proliferation of str*()
functions in the kernel and a previous step in the path to remove
the strcpy function from the kernel entirely [1].
