No, but you can limit the size of a tmpfs filesystem when creating it, see
-s size Specifies the total file system size in bytes. If zero is
given (the default), the available amount of memory (includ-
ing main memory and swap space) will be used. Note that four
megabytes are always reserved for the system and cannot be
assigned to the file system.
See /usr/share/examples/fstab/fstab.ramdisk for examples on how to set this
