Okay that was what I was missing. Pegging the tmpfs to some percentage
of available ram by default.

Follow up question.. is this value defined at install time or is it
50% of ram as seen at boot up?
If I add or remove ram between boot ups, post-install does the tmpfs
size automatically adjust to 50% of what is available at boot up?
