Subject[PATCH] nvme: target: fix buffer overflow
nvmet_execute_get_disc_log_page() passes a fixed-length string into
nvmet_format_discovery_entry(), which then does a longer memcpy() on
it, as pointed out by gcc-8:

In function 'nvmet_format_discovery_entry',
inlined from 'nvmet_execute_get_disc_log_page' at drivers/nvme/target/discovery.c:126:4:
drivers/nvme/target/discovery.c:62:2: error: 'memcpy' forming offset [38, 223] is out of the bounds [0, 37] [-Werror=array-bounds]
memcpy(e->subnqn, subsys_nqn, NVMF_NQN_SIZE);

Using strncpy() will make this well-defined, filling the rest of the
buffer with zeroes, under the assumption that the input is either
a NUL-terminated string, or a byte sequence containing no zeroes.
If the input is a string that is longer than NVMF_NQN_SIZE, we
continue to have no NUL-termination in the output.

I'm not sure why this only showed up in linux-next now, the bug seems
to have been in that file for a while.
