This patch fixes two problems with the string parsing code out of lparcfg.
First, it changes the data type of a char array to be unsigned.  This 
prevents some nasty behavior when the code is built with -fsigned-char, 
and one of the bytes containing size-of-string has a high-bit set.
Second, it corrects a bit of bad math when determining the size of the 
string coming back from the get-system-parameter hcall.
