When patching ACFS drivers (this includes GI PSU Patches) on Linux 6 and above, a filesystem full condition is possible within the /boot filesystem should the filesystem be constrained on space. Other symptoms include excessive time spent in the root scripts (rootcrs.pl) call to "acfsroot install".
