It would normally be cleaned on boot anyway, so I think we can
avoid putting this in the Release Notes if we clean it automatically.
I'm thinking it would probably be best if we delay mounting tmpfs on
/tmp until after this has been done. And also unifying the
overflowtmp logic since unless you look at the boot failures
carefully, it's not clear why this happens.
