Subject: [PATCH v2 0/3] various strscpy fixes

This patch series fixes up a couple of architecture issues where
strscpy wasn't configured correctly (missing on h8300, duplicating
local and asm-generic copies on powerpc and tile).

It also adds a use of zero_bytemask() to the final store for
strscpy to avoid writing uninitialized data to the destination.
However, to make this work we had to add support for zero_bytemask()
to the two architectures that didn't have it (alpha and tile),
because they were providing their own local copies, but didn't
provide the zero_bytemask() that was previously only required
when building with CONFIG_DCACHE_WORD_ACCESS.

The series can be pulled from:

  word-at-a-time.h: fix some Kbuild files
  word-at-a-time.h: support zero_bytemask() on alpha and tile
  strscpy: zero any trailing garbage bytes in the destination
