Subject: [PATCH net-next 5/9] fm10k: 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.

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

Other implementations of .*get_drvinfo also use strscpy so this patch
brings fm10k_get_drvinfo in line as well:

igb/igb_ethtool.c +851
static void igb_get_drvinfo(struct net_device *netdev,

igbvf/ethtool.c
167:static void igbvf_get_drvinfo(struct net_device *netdev,

i40e/i40e_ethtool.c
1999:static void i40e_get_drvinfo(struct net_device *netdev,

e1000/e1000_ethtool.c
529:static void e1000_get_drvinfo(struct net_device *netdev,

ixgbevf/ethtool.c
211:static void ixgbevf_get_drvinfo(struct net_device *netdev,
