No, then you couldn't use a MFS /tmp without swap space, which is
an entirely reasonable thing to do on systems with sufficient RAM
(and perhaps no writable disc at all - though you wouldn't be running
sysinst on one of those).
I didn't check the patch (yet), but I assume that the test for this is
just "type == MFS" with no relationship to /tmp - it is entirely
reasonable to have /tmp on a real partition (of its own), and /var/run
in a MFS...
