Subject: [PATCH v2] iio: sx9324: avoid copying property strings

We're doing some needless string copies when trying to assign the proper
`prop` string. We can make `prop` a const char* and simply assign to
string literals.

For the case where a format string is used, let's allocate some memory
via kasprintf() and point prop to it.

This also cleans up some deprecated strncpy() uses [1].

Changes in v2:
- make prop a const char* and do simple assignments (thanks Jonathan)
- rebase onto 3a568e3a961ba330
- Link to v1: https://lore.kernel.org/r/20230921-strncpy-drivers-iio-proximity-sx9324-c-v1-1-4e8d28fd1e7c@google.com
