net: enetc: ensure is NULL terminated after MDIO_NAME_LEN truncation

strncpy() simply bails out when copying a source string whose size
exceeds the destination string size, potentially leaving the destination
string unterminated.

One possible way to address is to pass MDIO_NAME_LEN - 1 and a
previously zero-initialized destination string, but this is more
difficult to maintain.

The chosen alternative is to use strlcpy(), which properly limits the
copy len in the (srclen >= size) case to "size - 1", and which is also
more efficient than the strncpy() byte-by-byte implementation by using
memcpy. The destination string returned by strlcpy() is always NULL
