[Bug 604630] Re: boot sequence no longer honors SHM_SIZE set in /etc/defaults/tmpfs


Given that:

1) The config file : /etc/default/tmpfs is no longer installed and
therefore doesn't contain a comment that says "Adjust the default size
of /dev/shm by uncommenting the line below" (or whatever it said

2) /dev/shm is now mounted as /run/shm who's size is controlled by some
other form of black magic

3) The reason I needed the size change was to tweak the now obsolete
vmware server 2.x

I'd say this issue can be folded, spindled, and mutilated.
