Thanks for all comments.  I withdraw my proposal "mountfs", and adopt
"mountkernfs".  "mountkfs" suggested by Martin Pitt looks also good
for me, but I concern that it may hit a namespace confliction with in
future filesystem named as "kfs" or something.

I've commited this feature in order to mount both tmpfs and sysfs into
the latest debian glibc cvs just now.  Please check it.
