[Qemu-devel] Bugs when cross-compiling qemu for Windows with mingw 8.1,

Hi all,

I have two issues when cross compiling current master for Windows with
mingw 8.1. Host is Fedora29. See further below for gcc and mingw

Reproduce with:
./configure --cross-prefix=x86_64-w64-mingw32-
--target-list="ppc-softmmu" --enable-gtk --with-gtkabi=3.0
--enable-sdl --with-sdlabi=2.0

Issue 1: Two bugs show up during compilation related to strncpy.
Replacing the offenders with memcpy seems to fix this.

First time:
block/sheepdog.c: In function 'find_vdi_name':
block/sheepdog.c:1239:5: error: 'strncpy' specified bound 256 equals
destination size [-Werror=stringop-truncation]
     strncpy(buf + SD_MAX_VDI_LEN, tag, SD_MAX_VDI_TAG_LEN);

Second time:
migration/global_state.c: In function 'global_state_store_running':
migration/global_state.c:45:5: error: 'strncpy' specified bound 100
equals destination size [-Werror=stringop-truncation]
     strncpy((char *)global_state.runstate,
            state, sizeof(global_state.runstate));

Issue 2: once strncpy has been replaced with memcpy in these two
instances, I can successfully compile, but the executable doesn't run
in Windows.
I tried to debug, and this is what gdb told me:

(gdb) run
