The use of strncpy() is considered deprecated for NUL-terminated
strings[1]. Replace strncpy() with strscpy_pad() (as it seems this case
expects the NUL padding to fill the allocation following the flexible
array). This additionally silences a warning seen when building under

./include/linux/fortify-string.h:38:30: warning: '__builtin_strncpy' offset 24 from the object at '__mptr' is out of the bounds of referenced subobject 'data' with type 'u8[]' {aka 'unsigned char[]'} at offset 24 [-Warray-bounds]
