This is broken as gpio_desc_to_lineinfo() requires the offset to be
already set in the info.  I could move the setting of offset before the
call, but would rather change gpio_desc_to_lineinfo() to treat info
strictly as output (it can determine the offset from the desc) so as
not to trap anyone else in the future.

I also intend to replace the use of strncpy, from this patch and
elsewhere, to placate the build-bot.
