strncpy again in xen

I know I'm repeating myself.. strncpy must always be explicitly NULL terminated. Here is another example from xen (utils)
static int get_name(int argc, char *argv[], char *name)
    ssize_t len = strlen(argv[0]);
    if ( len > XEN_LIVEPATCH_NAME_SIZE )
        fprintf(stderr, "ID must be no more than %d characters.\n",
        errno = EINVAL;
        return errno;
    /* Don't want any funny strings from the stack. */
    memset(name, 0, XEN_LIVEPATCH_NAME_SIZE);
    strncpy(name, argv[0], len);
    return 0;
There are a few other places in xen too..
