Subject[PATCH 1/2] string: Add stracpy and stracpy_pad mechanisms
Date
Several uses of strlcpy and strscpy have had defects because the
last argument of each function is misused or typoed.

Add macro mechanisms to avoid this defect.

stracpy (copy a string to a string array) must have a string
array as the first argument (to) and uses sizeof(to) as the
size.

These mechanisms verify that the to argument is an array of
char or other compatible types like u8 or unsigned char.

A BUILD_BUG is emitted when the type of to is not compatible.
