sizeof(de->di_fname) equals QNX4_SHORT_NAME_MAX, so this test fails as soon as 
a filename is longer than that!

This quick fix (untested!) should do the trick (and avoids computing the length 
of the name twice):

diff --git a/fs/qnx4/namei.c b/fs/qnx4/namei.c
index 8d72221735d7..7694f86fbb2e 100644
