New Revision: 234512

  MFC of r227310:
  Don astbestos garment and remove the warning about TMPFS being experimental
  -- highly experimental even. So far the closest to a bug in TMPFS that people
  have gotten to relates to how ZFS can take away from the memory that TMPFS
  needs. One can argue that such is not a bug in TMPFS. Irrespective, even if
  there is a bug here and there in TMPFS, it's not in our own advantage to
  scare people away from using TMPFS. I for one have been using it, even with
  ZFS, very successfully.
