I had issues with the MFS /var and /tmp[0] a couple days ago and changed
the code to move the "mount -a" up before /var and /tmp creation and
then actually test to be sure they are not writable before attempting to
create MFS versions.  The logic was basicly:

if touch /var/_writable_test; then
        rm /var/_writable_test
        #create MFS var

[0] I've got a slightly strange configuration with network booting
cluster nodes which have a disk for /tmp, /var, and swap.

Any statement of the form "X is the one, true Y" is FALSE.
