Subject: [PATCH v2] scsi: hpsa: replace deprecated strncpy

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

Instances of strncpy()'ing a string into a buffer and manually
NUL-terminating followed by sccanf with just "%d" as the format
specifier can be accomplished by strscpy() and kstrtoint().

strscpy() guarantees NUL-termination on the destination buffer and
kstrtoint is better way of getting strings turned into ints.

For the last two strncpy() use cases in init_driver_version(), we can
actually drop this function entirely.

Firstly, we are kmalloc()'ing driver_version. Then, we are calling
init_driver_version() which memset's it to 0 followed by a strncpy().
The pattern is 1) allocating memory for a string, 2) setting all bytes
to NUL, 3) copy bytes from another string + ensure NUL-padded.

For these, we can just stack allocate driver_version and
old_driver_version. This simplifies the code greatly as we don't have
any malloc/free or strncpy's.

Changes in v2:
- use stack for buffers (thanks Kees)
- use kstrtoint (thanks Kees)
- Link to v1: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20231026-strncpy-drivers-scsi-hpsa-c-v1-1-75519d7a191b@google.com
