Subject: Re: [PATCH v3] drivers/edac/edac_mc: Remove all strcpy() uses

Probably better to change the commit subject to something like
what is generally used by the subsystem.

Maybe:
	EDAC/mc: Convert strcpy to strscpy
or
	EDAC/mc: Prefer strscpy over strcpy

and also:

Perhaps this should use scnprintf rather than strscpy
Something like:
			n += scnprintf(buf + n, len - n, "%s",
				       p == e->label ? dim->label : OTHER_LABEL);
