Subject: [PATCH] scsi: fcoe: 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 expect `mode` to be NUL-terminated based on its usage with
strcasecmp():

|       ctlr->mode = fcoe_parse_mode(mode);
...
|       static enum fip_conn_type fcoe_parse_mode(const char *buf)
|       {
|       	int i;
|
|       	for (i = 0; i < ARRAY_SIZE(fip_conn_type_names); i++) {
|       		if (strcasecmp(buf, fip_conn_type_names[i]) == 0)
|       			return i;
|       	}
|
|       	return FIP_CONN_TYPE_UNKNOWN;
|       }

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.

We can drop the manual NUL-byte assignment but should keep the newline
removal so newlines don't creep into the string.
