This issue comes up from time to time, I've seen it on Ask Slashdot too.
But /tmp in RAM is bad. If you're writing/reading relatively small amounts
of data to/from /tmp, the data is cached anyway. If /tmp is in RAM, it
would mean the data is present in memory twice. And if you're dealing with
huge amounts of data, it's better to write them to disk.
