Subject: [PATCH v2] scsi: message: fusion: 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.

The only caller of mptsas_exp_repmanufacture_info() is
mptsas_probe_one_phy() which can allocate rphy in either
sas_end_device_alloc() or sas_expander_alloc(). Both of which
zero-allocate:
|       rdev = kzalloc(sizeof(*rdev), GFP_KERNEL);
... this is supplied to mptsas_exp_repmanufacture_info() as edev meaning
that no future NUL-padding of edev members is needed.

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

Also use the more idiomatic strscpy pattern of (dest, src, sizeof(dest))

Changes in v2:
- use sizeof(dest) pattern (thanks Kees)
- rebase onto mainline cbf3a2cb156a2c91
- Link to v1: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20230927-strncpy-drivers-message-fusion-mptsas-c-v1-1-edac65cd7010@google.com

Note: build-tested only.

Note: similar to drivers/scsi/mpi3mr/mpi3mr_transport.c +212 which uses
strscpy
