> passing the strlen() of the source string as the destination
> length is pointless, and gcc-8 now warns about it:
> drivers/net/ethernet/qlogic/qed/qed_debug.c: In function 'qed_grc_dump':
> include/linux/string.h:253: error: 'strncpy' specified bound depends on the 
> length of the source argument [-Werror=stringop-overflow=]
> This changes qed_grc_dump_big_ram() to instead uses the length of
> the destination buffer, and use strscpy() to guarantee nul-termination.
