No, We can check stream->name_len and name entry type in exfat_get_dentry_set().
And you are already checking entry type with TYPE_SECONDARY in
exfat_get_dentry_set(). Why do we have to check twice?

Where? It will not checked with ES_2_ENTRIES.

Sorry, I don't understand what you are talking about. If there is a problem
in ondisk-metadata, Filesystem should return error.

exfat_get_dentry_set validates file, stream entry. And you are trying to check
name entries with type_secondary. In addition, trying add the checksum check.
Conversely, Why would you want to add those checks to exfat_get_dentry_set()?
Why do we check only name entries separately? Aren't you intent to return
validated entry set in exfat_get_dentry_set()?
