Nice. Thanks Julia

A couple issues:

There is a problem with conversions with assignments
of strlcpy() so ideally the cocci script should make sure
any return value was not used before conversion.

This is not a provably good conversion:

drivers/s390/char/sclp_ftp.c
@@ -114,8 +114,7 @@ static int sclp_ftp_et7(const struct hmc
sccb->evbuf.mdd.ftp.length = ftp->len;
sccb->evbuf.mdd.ftp.bufaddr = virt_to_phys(ftp->buf);

- len = strlcpy(sccb->evbuf.mdd.ftp.fident, ftp->fname,
- HMCDRV_FTP_FIDENT_MAX);
+ len = stracpy(sccb->evbuf.mdd.ftp.fident, ftp->fname);

And:

I would have expected the bit below to find and convert uses like
drivers/hwmon/adc128d818.c: strlcpy(info->type, "adc128d818", I2C_NAME_SIZE);
but it seems none of those were converted.

I don't know why.
