Will sizeof() work with a static inline??

Hmm wasn't aware of strscpy(). Can't find it on my man nor /usr/include, but found

What to call it, osmo_strzcpy(), kind of like the "%zu" printf format char for size_t? osmo_strcpy_sizeof(), to clearly indicate use of sizeof() to prevent bugs with pointers-to-a-buf?
