But there's another lint check refusing to use /var/run.

Depending on what it really does, that sounds broken. /var/run is valid.

/var/run still exists as a symlink to /Run so third party applications and old
packages keep working, new packages should not use it.

I think they should. That would avoid hassle like this, wasted time
like this and it avoids spec file pollution like this. The whole /run
thing could have been done transparent for packagers by just creating
the /var/run -> ../run symlink.
