    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.
