Subject: [PATCH v2 bpf] libbpf: silence GCC8 warning about string truncation
Date: Wed, 24 Jul 2019 14:47:53 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20190724214753.1816451-1-andriin@fb.com> (raw)

Despite a proper NULL-termination after strncpy(..., ..., IFNAMSIZ - 1),
GCC8 still complains about *expected* string truncation:

  xsk.c:330:2: error: 'strncpy' output may be truncated copying 15 bytes
  from a string of length 15 [-Werror=stringop-truncation]
    strncpy(ifr.ifr_name, xsk->ifname, IFNAMSIZ - 1);

This patch gets rid of the issue altogether by using memcpy instead.
There is no performance regression, as strncpy will still copy and fill
all of the bytes anyway.

- rebase against bpf tree.
