Subject[PATCH] clean up scary strncpy(dst, src, strlen(src)) uses
Fix various weird constructions of strncpy(dst, src, strlen(src)). Length
limits should be about the space available in the destination, not
repurposed as a method to either always include or always exclude
a trailing NULL byte. Either the NULL should always be copied
(using strlcpy), or it should not be copied (using something like
memcpy). Readable code should not depend on the weird behavior of strncpy
when it hits the length limit. Better to avoid the anti-pattern entirely.

This is a follow-up to the anti-pattern being fixed in iscsi-target,
which was exploitable:
"iscsi-target: fix heap buffer overflow on error"
