Previously the code did not check in *some* filesystems for length
limitations, and truncated partially the statfs info or did not
set it correctly (i.e. it bailed out early if a copy{,in}str()
failed. Now it enforces the limits on all the filesystems.
Unfortunately the limit is 90 characters now. Having incorrect
statfs info can have security implications.  We could increase the
limits, or it is trivial to remove the checking...
