Memory usage for ubifs writes

when trying to save a 17kB file in Emacs to my 1.5GB ubifs data
partition, the OOM killer kills emacs, although at least 5MB of RAM
should still be available.  This could be an emacs problem, but I
somehow doubt it.  

Is ubifs somehow very memory hungry (does it need much memory to move
eraseblocks around?)

Trying to rule out other problems before I'll have to start another
round of emacs debugging...
