It has to be mounted before any scripts are run from init.d - some of the
started programs might need SystemV IPC - you never know. More, the /var/shm
must be mounted _after_ /var us mounted (if such is the case). The only
reasonable place for this is /etc/fstab. And it should be done before potato
goes out, because chances are it will coincide with the release of 2.4.0.
