Subject: [PATCH RFC 1/2] sysfs: add helpers for safely showing simple strings

Add a helper, sysfs_strscpy(), which simply copies a string and
appends a newline and NUL char to the end, making sure not to overflow
the destination buffer, which MUST be PAGE_SIZE bytes (which is true for
buffers in this context). It includes a compile time check for the
specified destination buffer size.

Also add a helper macro, sysfs_strcpy(), which calls sysfs_strscpy() with
count == PAGE_SIZE, for use with regular NUL-terminated strings. If the
src buffer is a fixed-size array, guarantee that we don't copy beyond its
end by only copying a maximum of sizeof(src) bytes.
