Hmm, yeah, TMPFS is needed for /run.  (Though since /run gets mounted by
the bootscripts, it can be a module.)

What's AUTOFS4_FS used for?  I don't *think* we specifically create any
config that needs it, but I have to admit I haven't been paying terribly
close attention to some of the recent fstab (and bootscript) changes.

Digging around Google, it *appears* to be the NFS automounter?  Why on
earth would Arch require that?  :-)
