Subject: [PATCH] net: dsa: lan9303: replace deprecated strncpy with memcpy

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

Let's opt for memcpy as we are copying strings into slices of length
`ETH_GSTRING_LEN` within the `data` buffer. Other similar get_strings()
implementations [2] [3] use memcpy().
