To reduce kernel size, I disabled both CONFIG_EXT2_FS and

Unfortunately the system behaves badly afterwards. It seems the file system
is considered full: new files can be created, but no data can be written.
Note that the file system is almost full, but root can still write more data
using the real ext3 filesystem driver.

This is a v3.13-rc1-ish kernel.

Diff of dmesg and output of a few operations below:
