    libadmin: Let xdr allocate rpc output strings
    In most functions, the libadmin library provides fixed sized buffers for
    RPC output strings instead of letting xdr allocate the output string.
    Unfortunately the fixed sized buffers do not account for the terminating
    nul char when the output string is the maximum length possible for the
    xdr output strings.
    To avoid potential buffer overflows, and to allow for larger xdr string
    sizes in the future, convert these to xdr allocated strings and use safe
    string functions to copy the results to the application buffers. Fail
    with an error if the application buffer is too small, instead of
    overflowing the buffer or truncating results.
    Thanks to Cheyenne Wills for pointing out this issue.
