I suppose de->di_fname can be QNX4_NAME_MAX or QNX4_SHORT_NAME_MAX isn't it ?
It's set based on di_status, if di_status is set, then it will be
QNX4_NAME_MAX and otherwise QNX4_SHORT_NAME_MAX.
We capture that into namelen, prior to the  string length check  - if
(strnlen(de->di_fname, namelen) >= sizeof(de->di_fname))
as below:

        de = (struct qnx4_inode_entry *) (bh->b_data + *offset);
        *offset += QNX4_DIR_ENTRY_SIZE;
        if ((de->di_status & QNX4_FILE_LINK) != 0) {
                namelen = QNX4_NAME_MAX;
        } else {
                namelen = QNX4_SHORT_NAME_MAX;
        }
