[PATCH] null-terminate over-long /proc/kallsyms symbols
Got a customer bug report (https://bugzilla.novell.com/190296) about kernel symbols longer than 127 characters which end up in a string buffer that is not NULL terminated, leading to garbage in /proc/kallsyms. Using strlcpy prevents this from happening, even though such symbols still won't come out right. A better fix would be to not use a fixed-size buffer, but it's probably not worth the trouble. (Modversion'ed symbols even have a length limit of 60.)
