unless too many things want to use memory, then tmpfs gives a great
contribution in taking down the machine.
As you pointed out yourself in another email, under memory pressure the kernel
starts doing odd choices.
So the point is: is it correct to enforce a default setting that will break
many software that would otherwise work flawlessy, and that makes the machine
less reliable but faster for certain kind of tasks?
