After update to 2.4.2, I cannot start openvpn:

systemd[1]: Starting OpenVPN tunneling daemon instance using
openvpn[4543]: Options error: --writepid fails with '/run/openvpn/': No
such file or directory
openvpn[4543]: Options error: Please correct these errors.

/run/openvpn/ is not created. I guess due to move of tmpfiles.d from /usr/lib
to /usr/lib64. Why was it moved? Has anybody tested the package at all? If so,
why am I seeing the error and you don't?

Manually creating the dir makes it work again.
