Subject: [PATCH] wifi: mac80211: 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.

Based on other assignments of similar fw_version fields we can see that
NUL-termination is required but not NUL-padding:
ethernet/intel/ixgbe/ixgbe_ethtool.c
1111:   strscpy(drvinfo->fw_version, adapter->eeprom_id,
1112:           sizeof(drvinfo->fw_version));

ethernet/intel/igc/igc_ethtool.c
147:    scnprintf(adapter->fw_version,
148:              sizeof(adapter->fw_version),
153:    strscpy(drvinfo->fw_version, adapter->fw_version,
154:            sizeof(drvinfo->fw_version));

wireless/broadcom/brcm80211/brcmfmac/core.c
569:    strscpy(info->fw_version, drvr->fwver, sizeof(info->fw_version));

wireless/broadcom/brcm80211/brcmsmac/main.c
7867:           snprintf(wlc->wiphy->fw_version,
7868:                    sizeof(wlc->wiphy->fw_version), "%u.%u", rev, patch);

wireless/broadcom/b43legacy/main.c
1765:   snprintf(wiphy->fw_version, sizeof(wiphy->fw_version), "%u.%u",

wireless/broadcom/b43/main.c
2730:   snprintf(wiphy->fw_version, sizeof(wiphy->fw_version), "%u.%u",

wireless/intel/iwlwifi/dvm/main.c
1465:   snprintf(priv->hw->wiphy->fw_version,
1466:            sizeof(priv->hw->wiphy->fw_version),

wireless/intel/ipw2x00/ipw2100.c
5905:   snprintf(info->fw_version, sizeof(info->fw_version), "%s:%d:%s",

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