       full - always full device

       If your system does not have /dev/full created already, it can be created with the follow-
       ing commands:

	       mknod -m 666 /dev/full c 1 7
	       chown root:root /dev/full

       File /dev/full has major device number 1 and minor device number 7.

       Writes to the /dev/full device will fail with an ENOSPC error.  This can be used  to  test
       how a program handles disk-full errors.

       Reads from the /dev/full device will return \0 characters.

       Seeks on /dev/full will always succeed.
