I think a lot of people and distributions are now building jack
with the --with-default-tmpdir=/dev/shm  option because almost
all modern systems have that mounted on a tmpfs already.  I believe
it is still important for reliable jack performance.  What
the impact of not doing it is on recent kernels, I don't know.
