Patch for strcasecmp(3), strcat(3), strcmp(3), strcpy(3), strdup(3)

Update documentation for strcasecmp(3), strcat(3), strcmp(3), strcpy(3), and
strdup(3) for length-limited operations (strncasecmp, strncat, strncmp, etc.):
- Mention that characters after a null character are not compared or copied
- Mention that inputs may or may not be null-terminated
- Refer to inputs as arrays instead of strings as appropriate
- Update standards references to C11 where appropriate

Note: There is no mdoc standards macro for C17 as of this posting, or I would
have used it.
