sh: use generic strncpy()

Current SH will get below warning at strncpy()

${LINUX}/drivers/mmc/host/vub300.c: In function 'new_system_port_status':
${LINUX}/arch/sh/include/asm/string_32.h:51:42: warning: array subscript\
  80 is above array bounds of 'char[26]' [-Warray-bounds]
   : "0" (__dest), "1" (__src), "r" (__src+__n)

In general, strncpy() should behave like below.

	char dest[10];
	char *src = "12345";

	strncpy(dest, src, 10);
	// dest = {'1', '2', '3', '4', '5',

But, current SH strnpy() has 2 issues.
1st is it will access to out-of-memory (= src + 10).
2nd is it needs big fixup for it, and maintenance __asm__
code is difficult.

To solve these issues, this patch simply uses generic strncpy()
instead of architecture specific one.
