[Savannah-hackers] ramfs / tmpfs

I tried to do an anon-cvs checkout this evening of emacs and received
a permission denied error for /mnt/ramfs.  I fixed the problem by
switching the filesystem type of /mnt/ramfs from ramfs to tmpfs.  I
believe tmpfs is actually what we should be using in this case -- we
can limit ram usage, and we can monitor the status of the memory being
used with df.
