Now that Brooks has split out dynamic creation of /var and /tmp for diskless
systems, I wonder if we could profitably coalesce these?
Maybe not; the ramdisk silliness is mostly just to help people who want to
use md's for small pools of high-speed cache, and is quite manual and
simple about configuration, where Brooks' var and tmp processing is quite
automatic. Still, it bears some thinking.
