struct ethtool_drvinfo {
        char    driver[32];
	...
        char    fw_version[ETHTOOL_FWVERS_LEN];
        char    bus_info[ETHTOOL_BUSINFO_LEN];

Yup, this is basically what FORTIFY_SOURCE will do automatically to
strcpy().

Yup, ETHTOOL_FWVERS_LEN == sizeof(drvinfo->fw_version)

Yup, ETHTOOL_BUSINFO_LEN == sizeof(drvinfo->bus_info)

Yup, looks good.
