That patch fixed a problem where we would screw up the ENOSPC accounting, and would slowly leak space into one of the counters. So eventually (or often in your case) you'd hit ENOSPC, but have plenty of space available. If you unmounted and mounted again, or simply rebooted, everything would have been fine. You can still use the fs, the accounting is purely in memory so it's not like your FS is permanently screwed. Thanks,
