 Our varlock-and-other-dirs-in-tmpfs setup loses directories on reboot.

 Packages from Fedora repos that create dirs and files in the affected
 directories will see breakage after the first reboot. Here is an example
 of how it impacts minicom/lockdev:

 This is because we have implemented the feature ahead of Fedora -- in F15
 the packages have an entry in /etc/tmpdirs.d/<packagename.conf> or in

 One possible workaround is to doublecheck that we are using the same
 tmpdirs as Fedora. If that is the case, we can query the yum sqlite
 database to see what packages install files into those 2 tmpfiles.d and
 evaluate impact and possible fixes.

 Marking this for 11.2.0-final as it definitely deserves to be relnoted.
