you did not understand waht i said because you removed the
quote for which my anser was targeted

* packages get "fixed" to use /var/tmp instead /tmp
* so my /tmp on the seperated disk is mostly unused
* i get this craop data back to rootfs

so i have additionally to add a bind-mount using the
same disk vor /var/tmp

it will get funny if now all are starting to patch their
apps to use /var/tmp - the glory /tmp on tmpfs will
mostly not used and the only effect is that many
users/admins as also packagers have a lot of work
for nothing
