(1) You don't have an inode shortage.  You have 99%/89%/99% inodes free.
(2) You can confirm this with "df -i".
(3) Hardlinks do not consume any inodes, only directory space.
(4) You're short of blocks (not inodes) on your 6GB root drive.
(5) "du -x --max-depth=1 /" may help to show what is using those 6GB.
