Subject[PATCH 66/75] perf probe: Fix unchecked usage of strncpy()
Date
From: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

The strncpy() function may leave the destination string buffer
unterminated, better use strlcpy() that we have a __weak fallback
implementation for systems without it.

In this case the 'target' buffer is coming from a list of build-ids that
are expected to have a len of at most (SBUILD_ID_SIZE - 1) chars, so
probably we're safe, but since we're using strncpy() here, use strlcpy()
instead to provide the intended safety checking without the using the
problematic strncpy() function.

This fixes this warning on an Alpine Linux Edge system with gcc 8.2:

util/probe-file.c: In function 'probe_cache__open.isra.5':
util/probe-file.c:427:3: error: 'strncpy' specified bound 41 equals destination size [-Werror=stringop-truncation]
strncpy(sbuildid, target, SBUILD_ID_SIZE);
