The return value of strlcpy differs from (strscpy or stracpy).

strlcpy returns the length of the src string
str[sa]cpy returns the length of the src string if it fits in dest
or -E2BIG if src is truncated by the size of dest
or -E2BIG if dest is 0 length

Any use of the strlcpy return value should not be converted
because the logic after an assignment or use of the return value
can not be assured to have the same behavior.

Thanks again.
