Subject: [PATCH v2] scsi: ibmvscsi_tgt: 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 don't need the NUL-padding behavior that strncpy() provides as vscsi
is NUL-allocated in ibmvscsis_probe() which proceeds to call
ibmvscsis_adapter_info():
|       vscsi = kzalloc(sizeof(*vscsi), GFP_KERNEL);

ibmvscsis_probe() -> ibmvscsis_handle_crq() -> ibmvscsis_parse_command()
-> ibmvscsis_mad() -> ibmvscsis_process_mad() -> ibmvscsis_adapter_info()

Following the same idea, `partition_name` is defiend as:
|       static char partition_name[PARTITION_NAMELEN] = "UNKNOWN";
... which is NUL-padded already, meaning strscpy() is the best option.

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.

However, for cap->name and info let's use strscpy_pad as they are
allocated via dma_alloc_coherent():
|       cap = dma_alloc_coherent(&vscsi->dma_dev->dev, olen, &token,
|                                GFP_ATOMIC);
&
|       info = dma_alloc_coherent(&vscsi->dma_dev->dev, sizeof(*info), &token,
|                                 GFP_ATOMIC);

Changes in v2:
- use strscpy_pad for info->partition_name (thanks Kees)
- rebase onto mainline bee0e7762ad2c602
