there never was such a limit (AFAIK), but you will
only see the first 4 characters in ifconfig, but there
is a maximum length for the device name (15), which
leaves 10 characters for vserver names ...

longer names will be cut, and collision can occur,
if the first 10 characters are the same ...

# ifconfig

eth1:ABCD Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:02:B3:BF:A2:64
          inet addr: Bcast: Mask:

# ip addr show

4: eth1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast qlen 100
    inet brd scope global eth1:ABCDEFGHIJ
