Summary:                    cp don't bothers about full filesystem. cat forces
file buffering.
Description: 
I found two small bugs, which had both s.th. todo with the rewrite of the
file libbb/copyfd.c

cp: if the destination filesystem is full, it just exits without a proper
error code or error message.

cat: i noticed this error, when I was testing if my mouse was probably
recognized. "cat /proc/psaux" gave me simply no output. What I know now is
that it only buffers this output for at least 4096 Bytes. But I didn't move
my mouse so long ;)

I've created a small patch, which now works for me.
Some feedback would be nice...
