Well most of the files which exihibit that issue were in /var/run or
/var/log. While investigating the latest kernel I had even cleared
/var/run still the files created were a few bytes in size but were
allocated 512M. I did nothing except rebooting to old kernel and
problem went away. My server is running the same services as in the
case when the latest kernel was used.

So it seems that there is a difference in creation of files by the teo kernels.
