Re: [opensuse-factory] Proposal: /tmp as tmpfs

My idea is different, buffers dedicated to a sole directory, or perhaps to a

entirely, except when/if big files were written.

Call it an hybrid tmpfs perhaps, with persistence. With a configurable limit
ram used.

If you want /tmp in non-swappable memory, nothing is stopping you from
using "ramfs" instead of "tmpfs".
