/tmp/ed.* buffer file
mdconfig -a -t swap -s 64m -o reserve -u 0
newfs -U /dev/md0
mount /dev/md0 /tmp
chmod 1777 /tmp
Also, there's /rescue/vi (since 7.0 I believe), which will complain
about /var/tmp/vi.recover, which you can a) ignore or b) use above procedure
with -u 1 to create /var/tmp.
Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
and never get to the software part.
