This is how we cap segment lengths on ObjectFileMachO:
ConstString const_segname(load_cmd.segname, std::min<size_t>(strlen(load_cmd.segname), sizeof(load_cmd.segname)));

This won't keep ASAN happy though as the strlen might go off the end. You might be able to check the last byte since I am guessing they will zero fill by default:

if (prpsinfo.pr_fname[sizeof (prpsinfo.pr_fname)-1] != '\0')
  thread_data.name.assign (prpsinfo.pr_fname, sizeof (prpsinfo.pr_fname));
  thread_data.name = prpsinfo.pr_fname;
