thanks for working on this.

does this (and the relevant sysinst commit) mean that we provide
a different set of functionality depending on the amount of memory?
i don't think it's a good idea.  poor performance on poor system
is ok.  but the lack of functionality is confusing.
IMO the fstype check should be removed.  (and probably make cleartmp
clean /var/shm as well.)
