Thanks for your report. This is the same problem that happens on OTA
when someone installs additional packages in the system partition and
there is not enough space left to apply the OTA. It is a non recoverable
situation and there must be a protection against this in system-image.

  udf with --custom-tarball that is too big: cannot pass bootsplash on

Status in Canonical System Image:
Status in system-image package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Summary: I am installing my own customized tarball to cooler with udf
  using --customized-tarball option. If the customized tarball is too
  large, udf reports "can't write" error and fails.

  Rebooting from recovery menu leaves device stuck in bootsplash.

  We don't want this to happen on a channel.

  Details to follow.
