Subject: [PATCH 1/5] lib: string.c:  Added a function strzcpy

Added a function strzcpy which works the same as strncpy,
but guaranteed to produce the trailing null character.

There are many places in the code where strncpy used although it
must be zero terminated, and switching to strlcpy is not an option
because the string must nonetheless be fyld with zero characters.
