Which on linux can cause problems with devfs.

Hmm... how easy would it be to add support for shmfs to an already released
Potato? Maybe we should take some preliminary steps - like, i.e., a script
that will mount the fs _only_ if necessary? If it turns out shmfs won't be
mountable, then the script is easily removed by an upgrade, if not - it
works OOB.
