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

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

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

No, that is not what I said.
