If the machine isn't doing much else than running the database, then
yeah, that may be the best available option.  If there are other things
going on then you have to think about how much competition there is for
the root disk.

But the impression I had from the OP's df listing is that he has several
disks available ... so he ought to be able to find one that doesn't need
to do anything except xlog.
