ralloc: Use strnlen() inside of strncat()
If the str is long or isn't null-terminated, strlen() could take a lot of time or even crash. I don't know why was it used in the first place, maybe for platforms without strnlen(), but strnlen() is already used inside of ralloc_strndup(), so this change should not additionally break anything.
