btrfs fails to write data due to error
No space left on device even though a lot of disk space remains free (can be a lot of GBs dependending on the size of the device).

No space left on device error for this situation?
This is better to be fixed in
btrfs, but apparently a large design error
I'm using Linux 4.8.1 on Ubuntu 16.04.
