We created /run for exactly this purpose. Create /run/console-setup
and put what you need inside there. You'll need to follow the
advice in http://wiki.debian.org/ReleaseGoals/RunDirectory .
You basically just need to have a Depends on
initscripts (>= 2.88dsf-13.3) and you're good to go. Don't store
megabytes of data in here though, since it's stored in virtual
memory on most systems.
