There is no /dev/full device on OpenBSD. If you run the 2.7 regress tests as root on OpenBSD, a /dev/full regular file will be created and the "test_write_full" test will fail. (because the subsequent write will succeed in writing to the /dev/full regular file).

To fix, change the test to check that /dev/full exists and is a character device.

Patch attached.
