It is just your implementation: "so I think the version of this patch
that uses strlcpy is a better way go.  In addition, I think nd_ps_desc
in the nd_struct struct should be changed to MAX_DESC_LEN to avoid this
confusion down the road."

If all of us agree with each other, could you help to send the related
fix patch ?
