allow sshd to work when /var is full.
this is critical because of there is no any barrier to allow user to log in and do something (empty /var from dust). but now this does not work because of log message is tryed to be writed to 'log'.... but /var is full and loggining is stale (((
this problem is typical for 'su' also.
when you logged in and try to 'su' when /var/ is full -- you are in stale.
# df -h
/dev/ad1s1d 989M 989M -79M 109% /var
...... bla bla bla, I am stale.....
fill /var/ and try to login through ssh
write login message to file, when user is logged already.
