[PATCH] s390/ipl: refactor deprecated strncpy

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


`strncpy` is deprecated for use on NUL-terminated destination strings [1].

Use `strscpy_pad` which has the same behavior as `strncpy` here with the
extra safeguard of guaranteeing NUL-termination of destination strings.
In it's current form, this may result in silent truncation if the src
string has the same size as the destination string.
