I'm afraid that is too early to pullup - truncating long labels 
by NUL is only small fraction of problem and without number of 
other changes things are now worse: now, we are able to create 
label with max-length (36 UTF-16 characters) but shorter labels,
created by NetBSD are not valid - there is no "end mark" (NUL)
(I assume that destination buffer isn't zeroed during allocation).

In the same time userland and kernel parts that assume
that string IS NUL-terminated are still here, for example in gpt:
(but there may be other places as well).
