Subject: [PATCH] cavium/liquidio: 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.

We expect `app_name` to be NUL-terminated:
	dev_info(&oct->pci_dev->dev,
		 "Running %s (%llu Hz)\n",
		 app_name, CVM_CAST64(cs->corefreq));
... and it seems NUL-padding is not required, let's opt for strscpy().

For `oct->boardinfo.name/serial_number` let's opt for strscpy() as well
since it is expected to be NUL-terminated and does not require
NUL-padding as `oct` is zero-initialized in octeon_device.c +707:
|       buf = vzalloc(size);
|       if (!buf)
|       	return NULL;
|
|       oct = (struct octeon_device *)buf;
