Subject: [PATCH] liquidio: replace deprecated strncpy/strcpy 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.

NUL-padding is not required as drvinfo is memset to 0:
|	memset(drvinfo, 0, sizeof(struct ethtool_drvinfo));

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

Link: https://manpages.debian.org/testing/linux-manual-4.8/strscpy.9.en.html [2]
