  Currently, if writing out a log entry fails, we unlink that log entry from our
  internal list of logfiles. So if writev(2) fails for potentially transient
  errors like ENOSPC, syslogd requires a restart, even if the filesystem has
  This change allows syslogd to ignore ENOSPC space errors, so that when the
  filesystem is cleaned up, syslogd will automatically start logging again
  without requiring the reset. This makes syslogd(8) a bit more reliable.
