Subject: Re: [PATCH] scsi: zfcp: Replace strlcpy() with strscpy()

Hey Kees,

thanks for the patch.

can you please send this patch to linux-scsi and CC the SCSI Maintainers
(Martin and James) instead (having linux-s390 on CC is fine)? zFCP doesn't go
via s390, being a SCSI driver.

This is corrct.

I'd rather have a compile-time check, whether the array sizes of
`rspn_req->name` and `fc_host_symbolic_name(shost)` run out of sync, or
against our expectations.

Something like:

	len = strscpy(rspn_req->name, fc_host_symbolic_name(shost),
		      sizeof(rspn_req->name));
	BUILD_BUG_ON(sizeof(rspn_req->name) !=
			     sizeof(fc_host_symbolic_name(shost)) ||
		     sizeof(rspn_req->name) !=
			     1 << sizeof(rspn_req->rspn.fr_name_len) * 8);
	rspn_req->rspn.fr_name_len = len;

Then the last assignment should also be correct; and if something changes -
unexpectedly, because this follows a FC standard - we need to adapt the code
anyway I'd think.

Or am I missing something?
