4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Kees Cook <keesc...@chromium.org>


[ Upstream commit 9e4eb1ce472fbf7b007f23c88ec11c37265e401c ]

Using memcpy() from a string that is shorter than the length copied means
the destination buffer is being filled with arbitrary data from the kernel
rodata segment. Instead, use strncpy() which will fill the trailing bytes
with zeros.

This was found with the future CONFIG_FORTIFY_SOURCE feature.
