  realpath() is supposed to return a result that fits in MAXPATHLEN
(including the zero) or ENAMETOOLONG.

  The code you are pointing out is supposed to never be executed. It it ever
was, it would kill the user's own session, not DoS anyone else.

  No, it is from OpenBSD, credits are at the right place.
