If it's only temporarily, I would probably do a bind-mount. Just create
~/tmp-tmp, as root cp -a /tmp ~/tmp-tmp/, mount -o bind ~/tmp-tmp/tmp
/tmp. (Sorry for the many tmps. :))

But I never had that issue in several years running sid on a laptop with
4GB RAM and /tmp as tmpfs.

it's possible to do more than a wild guess which I assume could still be
off by a factor of two or more.
