It's not an XFS specific test - it's a test that is supposed to test
POSIX write behaviour. i.e. if the filesystem is full, and then you
free 4k of space, then an 8k write should only be able to write 4k,

So doesn't a failure on ext4 indicate that there's something wrong
with ext4 (either it's ENOSPC detection or the short write
handling), not the test?
