    This is why I'm forever nagging people to not just grab some errno
    because its name happens to sound similar to the error you just detected.

    Yes, it superficially seems nice and logical for netfilter to use
    ENOSPC when it runs out of space. But when that error code propagates
    up to the user, they see "no space left on device" and will then run
    "df" and wonder what the hell happened to their computer.

    The kernel makes this mistake a *lot*. EFBIG in the rtc drivers? Really?
