This I can't really understand. It would mean that when checking to
see if the disk is full, the filesystem code somehow reads the disk
directly instead of hitting the block waiting to be pushed.
This (a) makes no sense to me and (b) strikes me as a bug in any case;
what if that were a data block rather than a metadata block being read?
