            Bug ID: 195006
           Summary: freebsd-update upgrade fails if /var is a tmpfs
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.0-RELEASE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: Needs Triage
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: olivier at cochard.me

If /var is a tmpfs, using a simple "freebsd-update -r X.Y upgrade" will fails.
It will correctly fetch and install the kernel, then ask for reboot and
entering "freebsd-update install", but after the reboot, the "freebsd-update
install" will say "No updates are available to install" and stuck user with a
new kernel but old userland.
=> There should have a check to be added for checking if the temporary
directory used by freebsd-update is on a RAM disk (tmpfs, md, etc…)
