MIPS: Loongson: Fix potentially wrong string handling
This error was reported by cppcheck: arch/mips/loongson/common/machtype.c:56: error: Dangerous usage of 'str' (strncpy doesn't always 0-terminate it) If strncpy copied MACHTYPE_LEN bytes, the destination string str was not terminated. The patch adds one more byte to str and makes sure that this byte is always 0.
