    No, it's pretty small to create a ram-based filesystem these days. Look
    at securityfs and debugfs for two simple examples that you should copy
    if you want to create your own. If you can come up with ways of making
    those files smaller, then that would be great. But as it is, it is
    _really_ simple to do this right now, especially with two working
    examples to copy from :)

    thanks,
