Subject: [PATCH v2] bna: replace deprecated strncpy with strscpy_pad

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

bfa_ioc_get_adapter_manufacturer() simply copies a string literal into
`manufacturer`.

Another implementation of bfa_ioc_get_adapter_manufacturer() from
drivers/scsi/bfa/bfa_ioc.c uses memset + strscpy:
|	void
|	bfa_ioc_get_adapter_manufacturer(struct bfa_ioc_s *ioc, char *manufacturer)
|	{
|		memset((void *)manufacturer, 0, BFA_ADAPTER_MFG_NAME_LEN);
|			strscpy(manufacturer, BFA_MFG_NAME, BFA_ADAPTER_MFG_NAME_LEN);
|	}

Let's use `strscpy_pad` to eliminate some redundant work while still
NUL-terminating and NUL-padding the destination buffer.
