Subject: [PATCH net-next 3/9] e100: replace deprecated strncpy with strscpy

From: Justin Stitt <justinstitt@...gle.com>

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

The "...-1" pattern makes it evident that netdev->name is expected to be
NUL-terminated.

Meanwhile, it seems NUL-padding is not required due to alloc_etherdev
zero-allocating 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.

This is in line with other uses of strscpy on netdev->name:
$ rg "strscpy\(netdev\->name.*pci.*"

drivers/net/ethernet/intel/e1000e/netdev.c
7455:   strscpy(netdev->name, pci_name(pdev), sizeof(netdev->name));

drivers/net/ethernet/intel/ixgbe/ixgbe_main.c
10839:  strscpy(netdev->name, pci_name(pdev), sizeof(netdev->name));
