Probably several processes have something open in /tmp.
Anyway, you must not be CDed to /tmp to unmount it. And
if there are other processes with something open, they will
have to be dealt with. Probably the easiest thing is to
just go to single user and only mount root and the filesystem
where you intend to put the extra large /tmp - I think you
Then do: /ln -s /var/tmp /tmp
