[Qemu-block] [PATCH v3 5/5] migration: Use strnlen() for fixed-size stri

GCC 8 introduced the -Wstringop-overflow, which detect buffer overflow
by string-modifying functions declared in <string.h>, such strncpy(),
used in global_state_store_running().

Since the global_state.runstate does not necessarily contains a
terminating NUL character, We had to use the QEMU_NONSTRING attribute.

The GCC manual says about the nonstring attribute:

  However, when the array is declared with the attribute the call to
  strlen is diagnosed because when the array doesn’t contain a
  NUL-terminated string the call is undefined. [...]
  In addition, calling strnlen and strndup with such arrays is safe
  provided a suitable bound is specified, and not diagnosed.

GCC indeed found an incorrect use of strlen(), because this array
is loaded by VMSTATE_BUFFER(runstate, GlobalState) then parsed
using qapi_enum_parse which does not get the buffer length.

Use strnlen() which returns sizeof(s->runstate) if the array is not

This fixes:
