Subject[PATCH] tools lib api fs: fix gcc9 compilation error
Date
GCC9 introduced string hardening mechanisms, which exhibits the error
during fs api compilation:

error: '__builtin_strncpy' specified bound 4096 equals destination size
[-Werror=stringop-truncation]

This comes when the length of copy passed to strncpy is is equal to
destination size, which could potentially lead to buffer overflow.

There is a need to mitigate this potential issue by limiting the size of
destination by 1 and explicitly terminate the destination with NULL.
