Huh? These are tmpfs filesystems, and this seems to me like a fine
and appropriate use.
My problem with this scenario is that they've never limited the size
of these tmpfs filesystems out of the box. There's no reason to give
a runaway process the opportunity to exhaust VM by writing a huge
garbage file to /tmp, for example. And there's no reason for /var/run
to be more than a few dozen megabytes, is there?
Just poking an old gripe with a stick...
