Paul Moore Jan. 22, 2015, 4:59 a.m. UTC
In preparation for expanded use in the kernel, make getname_kernel()
more useful by allowing it to handle any legal filename length.

Thanks to Guenter Roeck for his suggestion to substitute memcpy() for
strlcpy().

Noted memcpy() difference (I assume to avoid races).

It is more efficient to use memcpy if the string length is known.
