I have that same issue on my build system.
I suspect e2fsprogs-1.42.6 has an issue running some tests (there is too some tests files remaining in /tmp).

After my build, I see using 'ps ax' a process doing
cat /dev/zero
and the other process should be '/bin/sh ./test_one' which is an e2fsprogs test

This will eat all your disk space. The partition will be full, if you are lucky, this is after the build is finished, but it may be earlier and create test failure earlier ...

Once 'cat /dev/zero' is killed, space is free on disk.
Unfortunately, if I rebuild only e2fsprogs, the same issue is not triggered, so a full build is needed.
