Bug #10153: File.open block does not throw "No space left on device (Errno::ENOSPC)" if the data fits the buffer of IO.write

----------------------------------------
When writing to file in disk using File.open with a block as an argument, if the diskspace is full and IO.write does not flush right away, the block just exits successfully instead of throwing Errno:ENOSPC.


Setup: Drive partition needs to be full

Eg. of a write that will succeed normally with no exception given that the drive is full (this means that the expected failure is being swallowed)

~~~
File.open('/full_drive/test.txt','wb') do |file|
  file.write("test")
end

#This will complete normally because the "test" data does not get flushed
#This will leave a 0kb file on the disk
~~~

Eg. force a flush to see the error

~~~
File.open('/full_drive/test.txt','wb') do |file|
  file.write("test")
  file.flush
end

#This will throw Errno::ENOSPC
#This will leave a 0kb file on the disk
~~~

Eg. write a large enough data that file.write will flush by itself (most likely it hits the buffer cap)

~~~
fills = '1'*1048576
File.open('/full_drive/test.txt','wb') do |file|
  file.write(fills)
end

#This will throw Errno::ENOSPC
#This will leave a 0kb file on the disk
~~~

Eg. When not using File.open block argument and closing the IO with an ensure block

~~~
begin
  io = File.open('/full_drive/test.txt', 'wb')
  io.write("test")
ensure
  io.close
end

#This will throw Errno::ENOSPC
#This will leave a 0kb file on the disk
~~~


Currently tested in RHEL5.

Notes:
- I've encountered this in ruby-1.9.2
- I've tested this with ruby-2.1.2
- I'm not sure if the issue is because of File.open usage of c-extension rb_ensure or io_close. reference: (http://ruby-doc.org/core-1.9.3/File.html#method-c-open)
