I think there is something fishy about kernel 2.6.9.
I failed to enable TMPFS during configuration of
my linux kernel 2.6.9.
However, somehow /proc/filesystems lists "nodev tmpfs" line !?
Is this to be expected?
Just in case, the compilation of the kernel used stale object files, or
I recompiled the kernel after running make clean.
Still, "tmpfs" shows up in /proc/filesystems
listing although TMPFS was not configured.
I tried to figure out where "tmpfs" was
exported to /proc/filesystems, but could
This bug may bite more users in subtle ways
in the future.
BTW, the kernel version is 2.6.9
(-test-tmscsim suffix to the version string below
is added to remind me that I was testing tmscsim SCSI driver module.)

Is there a specific sub-system module to whose maintainer
I should submit a bug report?
