The right name is /run, I guess.
How about an implementation in sysvinit like this:
- sysvinit includes /run
- if the kernel supports it a shmfs is mounted on /run
- otherwise if the kernel supports it a ramdisk is mounted on /run
- the size of the shmfs/ramdisk can be set in /etc/default/rundirsize
and is 128K by default. That will give you 94K and 128 inodes
for an ext2 filesystem on a ramdisk and 128K for shmfs. That
should be plenty, or not?
I don't think persistance between boots is important.
