|   Changes to the configuration and defaults of tmpfs filesystems:
|   [...]
|   In order to improve the default size limits of tmpfs filesystems,
|   it is now possible to configure the size as a percentage of the
|   total virtual memory.  The default for /tmp and /run/shm is now
|   20%VM rather than 20% (RAM).  A tmpfs will only be mounted on
|   /tmp on systems with more than 64MiB RAM.
