Any chance of a printk() when a user's file write is stopped due to
hitting a hard quota? Would be a nice thing to have logged. Although
perhaps for messages like this and other future messages, we might
consider a new log message reporting scheme.

To some extent, what we want here is a way for kernel-generated
messages to be sent back to the user that generated them. There's no
reason for the system-wide log to record quota violations, but the
user responsible cares. Similarly, tape-read errors are more of
concern to the user who is using the tape drive than the system
