Following warning was reported by Kernel Test Robot.

In function 'utf8_parse_version',
inlined from 'utf8_load' at fs/unicode/utf8mod.c:195:7:
>> fs/unicode/utf8mod.c:175:2: warning: 'strncpy' specified bound 12 equals
destination size [-Wstringop-truncation]
175 |  strncpy(version_string, version, sizeof(version_string));
    |  ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The -Wstringop-truncation warning highlights the unintended
uses of the strncpy function that truncate the terminating NULL
character if source string is longer than the destination size.

strscpy() returns -E2BIG error code in case the source string doesn't
fit into the destination. Hence, use strscpy() and return an error for
overly-long strings instead of creating a non-null-terminated string
with strncpy().

Fixes: 9d53690f0d4e5 (unicode: implement higher level API for string handling)

Changes in v8
  - Improve the commit message to decribe about how overly-long strings
    are handled.
