NAMEfull - always full device
CONFIGURATIONIf your system does not have /dev/full created already, it can be created with the following commands:

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

Reads from the /dev/full device will return \0 characters.
Seeks on /dev/full will always succeed.
