makefs: Reject UFS labels that are too long to fit

If a specified UFS label is too long to fit, makefs currently silently
truncates it.

This causes problems if the created file system contains files like
/etc/fstab that expect the whole label.

You may end up with a release image that was built "successfully"
but doesn't actually boot.

The attached patch lets makefs reject UFS labels that don't fit which
makes the issue easier to spot.
