An error of mine: checking the actual scenario, libext2 is in USR yet!
I do not gain anything using the trick. The only scope is to setup TMP
befor of loading USR. Now, first USR is loaded, then TMP is made.

But using the trick there is the possibility to eliminate completely
this Setup/tmp: the boot process

        1. check available RAM
        2. create /tmp according an euristic rule, such "low, med, high"


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
