IMO, it's a non-issue; you probably shouldn't be letting your filesystems to 
become full in the first place, much less running VMs on it. Besides, most 
filesystems reserve some space for the superuser, now unless there's a 
cross-platform way to figure out just how much space that is, you'd still be 
getting errors despite having 5~10% of the filesystem technically free.
