You need to add an entry to your /etc/vfstab.  Check the man pages for
vfstab, mount_tmpfs, and swap for details.  You will need to decide if
you want /tmp to be on swap.

If you are adding additional space over and above any swap, then there
is likely already a swap entry in the vfstab.  You can model your new
entry on it, if so.
