Looks to me like you have insufficient free space on your disk --- the
code is trying to create another 16-MB WAL segment, and is failing,
no doubt for lack of free space.  (Yes, the quoted kernel error message
is incorrect ... that problem is patched in current sources.)

If you do have more than 16MB free on your WAL disk, then there's
another problem...
