Bug#201848: dpkg: if not enough disk space say so

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.10
Severity: normal

I found that with df saying
/dev/hdb11             4806048   4434104    127808  98% /var
one could install kernel-image-2.4.21-1-k7_2.4.21-1_i386.deb
but if usage was 99%, installation would fail for unknown reasons.

Therefore, please make dpkg say that the problem was disk space, as
otherwise we will never guess, as most other packages will still
install normally.
