Subject: [PATCH] octeontx2-af: 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 can see that linfo->lmac_type is expected to be NUL-terminated based
on the `... - 1`'s present in the current code. Presumably making room
for a NUL-byte at the end of the buffer.

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

Let's also prefer the more idiomatic strscpy usage of (dest, src,
sizeof(dest)) rather than (dest, src, SOME_LEN).
