This patch adds length checking for a bunch of instances in the
backend where a statically sized buffer is written to. Most of these
should be pretty safe in practice, but it's probably better to be safe
than sorry.

I was actually looking for cases where NAMEDATALEN is assumed to be
32, but only found one. That's fixed too, as well as a few bits of
code cleanup.
