Indeed, there are several file systems of _type_ "tmpfs", but (at
least on my laptop with Edgy) the _name_ of
/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/volatile/ is set to "tmpfs". These are my
tmpfs file systems:
affi at gorgon:~$ mount|grep tmpfs
varrun on /var/run type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,mode=0755)
varlock on /var/lock type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,mode=1777)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
devshm on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
tmpfs on /lib/modules/2.6.17-10-generic/volatile type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
The latter is the previously named "lrm", and as you can see, "tmpfs"
is mentioned twice on that line.
