I looked at the code for directory-files, and it seems you cannot quit
out of it while it is waiting in a system call.  This means that
while-no-input won't currently work when directory-files hangs in that

It is probably possible to implement quitting out of the system call
in directory-files.  Doing this requires setting immediate_quit to 1,
at least while that system call is running.

Which system call takes the long time?  Is it opendir, or readdir?
