hfs: fix namelength memory corruption
Fix a stack corruption caused by a corrupted hfs filesystem. If the catalog name length is corrupted the memcpy overwrites the catalog btree structure. Since the field is limited to HFS_NAMELEN bytes in the structure and the file format, we throw an error if it is too long.
