My 37 GiB ext4 partition apparently has a total of around 2.5 M
inodes. Currently (after recently running the garbage collector), its
inodes usage is at 15%:

df -i /dev/sda1
Filesystem      Inodes  IUsed   IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/sda1      2445984 358647 2087337   15% /

My home dir only uses 56 k inodes:

du --inodes -s ~
56002   /home/maxim

This would suggest that in my case it really was the Guix store which
was responsible for consuming all the available inodes. I'll keep
monitoring it as it progressively fills up again.

Thanks for pointing at the --inodes option of du, I didn't know about
