as since r283461 mounting temps to the /tmp mount point is mandatory

Patch looks good to me.

Martin, would you mind formally approving it?
Comment 2 Tijl Coosemans freebsd_committer 2016-09-06 12:18:36 UTC
I'm a little hesitant to require /tmp to be tmpfs.  I noticed that Firefox stores video files in /tmp and that can take up a lot of space.  How about making /compat/linux/dev/shm a directory and tell users to mount a tmpfs there just like we tell them to mount linprocfs on /compat/linux/proc?  /tmp and /dev/shm wouldn't share the same namespace then either.

New revision: 424236
URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/424236

Log:
  Since base r283461 /compat/linux/dev/shm must point to a tmpfs.  Make
  /compat/linux/dev/shm a plain directory instead of a link to /tmp so we
  don't force users to mount tmpfs on /tmp.  This also makes /dev/shm a
  separate namespace from /tmp.

  Add libffi, needed by glib2.
