Subject: [PATCH] dm log userspace: replace deprecated strncpy with strscpy

`strncpy` is deprecated for use on NUL-terminated destination strings
[1] and as such we should prefer more robust and less ambiguous string
interfaces.

`lc` is already zero-allocated:
|       lc = kzalloc(sizeof(*lc), GFP_KERNEL);
... as such, any future NUL-padding is superfluous.

A suitable replacement is `strscpy` [2] due to the fact that it
guarantees NUL-termination on the destination buffer without
unnecessarily NUL-padding.

Let's also go with the more idiomatic `dest, src, sizeof(dest)` pattern
for destination buffers that the compiler can calculate the size for.
