strcpy() performs no bounds checking on the destination buffer. This
could result in linear overflows beyond the end of the buffer, leading
to all kinds of misbehaviors. The safe replacement is strscpy().

This is a previous step in the path to remove the strcpy() function
entirely from the kernel.

Hi,

Following the comments in the previous version I don't use the scnprintf
function avoiding speed penalties. Instead I use the strscpy.

Thanks,
Len

This is a task of the KSPP [1]

[1] https://github.com/KSPP/linux/issues/88

Changelog v1 -> v2
- Use the strscpy() instead of scnprintf() to add labels and follow a
  code pattern more similar to the current one (advance "p" and
  decrement "left") (Robert Richter).

Changelog v2 -> v3
- Rename the "left" variable to "len" (Robert Richter).
- Use strlen(p) instead of strlen(OTHER_LABEL) to decrement "len" and
  increment "p" as otherwise "left" could underflow and p overflow
  (Robert Richter).

Changelog v3 -> v4
- Change the commit subject (Joe Perches).
- Fix broken logic (Robert Richter).
- Rebase against v5.14-rc5.
