Subject: [PATCH net-next 6/9] i40e: use scnprintf over strncpy+strncat

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.

Moreover, `strncat` shouldn't really be used either as per
fortify-string.h:
 * Do not use this function. While FORTIFY_SOURCE tries to avoid
 * read and write overflows, this is only possible when the sizes
 * of @p and @q are known to the compiler. Prefer building the
 * string with formatting, via scnprintf() or similar.

Instead, use `scnprintf` with "%s%s" format string. This code is now
more readable and robust.
