Use strlcat() to append a string to the previously created first part.

The semantic match that finds this kind of problem is as follows:

// <smpl>
expression dev;
expression phys;
expression str;
expression size;
 	usb_make_path(dev, phys, size);
-	strlcpy(phys, str, size);
+	strlcat(phys, str, size);
// </smpl>
