kernel allowing someone to modify the passed string they could indeed try to
trick the kernel into overflowing the buffer by moving the null terminator
before strcpy is called.

However, I consider trying to fight these kind of problems in this way to be a

That said, the code is somewhat weaker than it could be, but changing this
