ok, I forgot there's strlcpy.. v2 attached

We are getting fake gcc warning when we compile with gcc9 (9.1.1):

     CC       jvmti/libjvmti.o
   In file included from /usr/include/string.h:494,
                    from jvmti/libjvmti.c:5:

       inlined from ‘copy_class_filename.constprop’ at jvmti/libjvmti.c:166:3:

         |                          ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
   cc1: all warnings being treated as errors

As per Arnaldo's suggestion using strlcpy, which does
the same thing and keeps gcc silent.
