  As suggested more than once in the lists, drop -M from flags to mfs
  for /tmp and /var.  This makes the memory discs swap-backed instead
  of malloc-backed.  A swap-backed memory disc should not be worse
  than a malloc-backed one in any scenario because it will start
  touching swap only when needed.  OTOH, a malloc-backed disc can
  starve limited kernel resources and evenually crash the system.
  Reflect the change in the rc.conf(5) manpage.  Also stop telling
  lies there about softupdates: it does not waste disc space, it
  just can delay its freeing.
