Actually there is a way. I too have not been satisfied with the tmpmfs
features in rc, so for some time now I've simply created a hard link:
cd /sbin && ln -f mdmfs mount_md
and then used an entry like this in /etc/fstab:
md /tmp md rw,async,-Sp1777,-s768M 0 0
This works great for me. A simple patch to mtree could make this hard link
part of the base system. Nothing else is needed.
