SubjectRe: [PATCH] make distclean tries to delete dirs in tmpfs

Wouldn't it be better to fix tmpfs/ramfs to report something sensible,
even if it's artificial? Perhaps reporting the cardinality of the
directory, if that happens to be easily available.

N.B.: X/KDE will not run on a ramfs, because it reports as a size-zero
filesystem in "df". Switching to tmpfs solved that for me.
