ALSA: Convert strlcpy to strscpy when return value is unused
strlcpy is deprecated. see: Documentation/process/deprecated.rst Change the calls that do not use the strlcpy return value to the preferred strscpy. Done with cocci script: @@ expression e1, e2, e3; @@ - strlcpy( + strscpy( e1, e2, e3); This cocci script leaves the instances where the return value is used unchanged. After this patch, sound/ has 3 uses of strlcpy() that need to be manually inspected for conversion and changed one day. $ git grep -w strlcpy sound/ sound/usb/card.c: len = strlcpy(card->longname, s, sizeof(card->longname)); sound/usb/mixer.c: return strlcpy(buf, p->name, buflen); sound/usb/mixer.c: return strlcpy(buf, p->names[index], buflen); Miscellenea: o Remove trailing whitespace in conversion of sound/core/hwdep.c Link: Signed-off-by: Joe Perches <> Acked-by: Mark Brown <> Link: Signed-off-by: Takashi Iwai <>
