Subject: [for-next][PATCH 6/6] tracing: Use strncpy instead of memcpy for string keys in hist
 triggers

From: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@...ux.intel.com>

Because there may be random garbage beyond a string's null terminator,
it's not correct to copy the the complete character array for use as a
hist trigger key.  This results in multiple histogram entries for the
'same' string key.

So, in the case of a string key, use strncpy instead of memcpy to
avoid copying in the extra bytes.

Before, using the gdbus entries in the following hist trigger as an
example:

  # echo 'hist:key=comm' > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_waking/trigger
  # cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_waking/hist

  ...

  { comm: ImgDecoder #4                      } hitcount:        203
  { comm: gmain                              } hitcount:        213
  { comm: gmain                              } hitcount:        216
  { comm: StreamTrans #73                    } hitcount:        221
  { comm: mozStorage #3                      } hitcount:        230
  { comm: gdbus                              } hitcount:        233
  { comm: StyleThread#5                      } hitcount:        253
  { comm: gdbus                              } hitcount:        256
  { comm: gdbus                              } hitcount:        260
  { comm: StyleThread#4                      } hitcount:        271

  ...

  # cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_waking/hist | egrep gdbus | wc -l
  51

After:

  # cat /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_waking/hist | egrep gdbus | wc -l
  1
