Put /etc/ssh/sshd_config back the way it was. Then kill and restart
the ssh daemon. Again, rebooting the system to cause any daemons that
have files in /var open to close them - thus freeing the space - and
reopen with real files is a good idea.

The only thing magic in /var for sshd is /var/empty. Make sure that
directory exists, is owned by root and is not group or world writable.
